The local reinforcement of a thermoplastic front bumper fascia with TAFNEX is a good example for the effectiveness of local reinforcement. UD tape placement enables lower wall thicknesses while maintaining the same mechanical properties. 2x layers of UD tape lead to a thickness reduction of the bumper to 40%.
