Interior pillars have to provide multiple properties that support a valuable aesthetic appearance, high impact protection, safety functionalities, and medium to high heat resistance. When airbag deployment functionalities are required, interior pillars also need materials with low temperature impact resistance. For unpainted pillar applications, low gloss aesthetics and easy flow are required.
The family of PULSE™ GX Engineering Resins from Trinseo Automotive offers suitable properties and supports pillar application demands:
As a cost-effective materials solution for pillars without airbag deployment, Trinseo Automotive offers customized MAGNUM™ ABS Resins with either lower or sufficient heat resistance.
All our MAGNUM™ ABS and PULSE™ PC/ABS resins benefit of a unique mass production process enhancing low emission, VOCs, and odor to fulfill interior requirements, compared to most of the standard emulsion resins.
Additionally, INSPIRE™ 1305/1405 Performance Polymers with low emission, low gloss, and good scratch resistance – or VELVEX™ 5250 Reinforced Elastomers with very low gloss and very good scratch and mar resistance – are also suitable.
