LPO reduces weight several ways. They add up to weight savings for the product.
- The specific gravity of LPO material is 1.
- Because LPO molds can be shaped to conform to the needs of the
assembly, there can be significant material reductions. Up to 66%
reductions are possible for some designs.
- Eliminating housings saves the weight of the housing.
- Mechanical fasteners add weight. Particularly metal fasteners.
