Excellent interior design has become a priority for future-oriented car manufacturers. Due to consumers’ higher expectations for advanced comfort in interiors, the production of innovative instrument panels is an ever-increasing challenge. Painted and unpainted as well as coated and overmolded components have to enable the perfect technical and aesthetic integration of multiple applications like IP carriers, dashboards, air bag housings and covers, navigation systems, or storage space.
Steel and aluminum have been widely replaced by advanced plastics, allowing manufacturers to save significantly 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, INSPIRE™ Polypropylene as well as our range of TPE Solutions.
