Customized Plastics for High-tech Instrument Panels

Trinseo Automotive offers tailor-made PC/ABS resins and polypropylene compounds to fulfill the complex requirements of advanced instrument panels for a unique driving experience.

Excellent interior design has become a priority for future-oriented car manufacturers. Due to the consumers’ higher expectations for advanced comfort in interiors, the production of innovative instrument panels is an ever-increasing challenge. Painted and unpainted components have to enable the perfect technical and aesthetic integration of multiple applications like dashboards, air bag housings, navigation systems, or storage space.

Steel and aluminum are widely replaced by advanced plastics, allowing manufacturers to save dramatically on the cost of the instrument panel while substantially reducing its weight. Stiffness and heat resistance, low emissions (VOC) and odor, but also ductility and scratch resistance are important features provided by our tailor-made grades: PULSE™ PC/ABS Resins, VELVEX™ Reinforced Elastomers, and INSPIRE™ Polypropylene.
