In addition to its work in windows and doors, the reports details REHAU’s involvement in projects as diverse as robust polymer pressure tanks for environmentally efficient hydrogen cell powered vehicles which can store the gas at 700, and polymer embedded with glass bubbles for lighter fuel saving materials on aircraft.
