High Impact Resilience and Premium Aesthetics for Central Storage Areas

Mid/floor consoles in vehicles have complex challenges in terms of functionality and aesthetics. ABS and PC/ABS resins, Reinforced Elastomers, and TPE Solutions from Trinseo Automotive offer a lightweighting solution to meet these needs.

Mid/floor consoles have become both central storage areas and control centers for cars in an era of comfort and connectivity. There are various approaches to designing these applications, such as shell design, support element design, or integral design. The requirements for all types of mid/floor consoles and their individual components are nearly the same: they must withstand kicking, scuffing, pressing, and scratching, while providing premium aesthetics and comfort.

Trinseo Automotive’s materials solutions, such as MAGNUM™ ABS Resins, PULSE™ Engineering Resins, VELVEX™ Reinforced Elastomers, and our TPE Solutions help OEMs and their suppliers to meet the increasing expectations of technical performance and top-of-the-line aesthetics and haptics.
