Spoilers represent one of the largest segments within the automotive exterior trim and accessory industry. Trinseo's MAGNUM™ ABS Resin and PULSE™ PC/ABS Engineering Resin meet the requirements of the three main types of spoiler designs:
Typical injection-molded spoiler designs require a high melt flow for easy processing and a very smooth, consistent surface, along with good impact resistance for durability. Low coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CLTE) is very important for larger injection-molded spoiler designs, which require enhanced dimensional stability due to size, operating temperature range, and gap tolerance requirements relative to other vehicle components. Trinseo’s mineral-filled materials allow for weight improvements of more than 10% versus incumbent, low CLTE products offered for spoiler applications. Finally, blow molded spoiler designs demand good melt/parison strength for processing, a smooth surface finish for paintability, and high impact performance.
