General Motors, the US-based manufacturer, has won a prize for its innovative use of materials in a carbon composite air extractor. The part for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was named winner in the Performance and Customisation category of the Society of Plastics Engineers’ Automotive Innovation Awards.

Engineered from carbon-fibre composites, the air extractor is bonded to two components: a polyamide vent screen and a water deflector moulded from SABIC’s Valox thermoplastic polyester. Adhesive bonding isolates the carbon composite panel from the aluminium bonnet.
