From Interiors to Under the Hood

Our solutions for thermoplastics that help reduce vehicle weight, improve strength, increase fuel efficiencies and much more can often be alternatives to rubber applications. From commodity to specialty materials for exterior, interior, lighting, under-the-hood, cable and wiring jacketing and vehicle systems applications, we can partner with you to help find the ideal material that can meet sustainable, regulatory and performance requirements.

As a trusted expert in the automotive, mobility and transportation space, we can help find solutions that adhere to automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEM) safety, testing and performance-based standards, including the following:

  • Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) Standards
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Center for Automotive Lightweighting
  • United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Regulations

Whether it’s material specification, part design, troubleshooting and review, production part approval process (PPAP) assistance or even assistance during manufacturing tests, we can help you tackle your material challenges.

Exterior

Exterior

We provide a broad portfolio of high-performance thermoplastics for exteriors, including body side molding, bumpers, door handles, electric vehicle (EV) chargers, fenders, gas tanks, grills, mirrors, rocker panels, step bars and step pads.

Materials to consider for exterior:

Interior

Interior

For automotive interiors, we provide materials that deliver heat stability, scratch resistance, and “soft touch” or low stickiness for center consoles, cup holders, door panels, grips, handles, headliners, instrument panels, mats, mirrors, roof consoles, seats, shifters, sun visors, trim and more.

Materials to consider:

Lighting

Lighting

We offer a number of thermoplastics that provide excellent light transmission and transparency, heat resistance, shatter resistance and ability to be highly moldable for headlights and taillights.

Materials for automotive lighting:

Under the Hood

Under the Hood

Under the hood thermoplastics provide functionality in extreme temperature changes, durability and resistance to chemicals. Applications include air ducts and intakes, batteries, bumpers, cowl vents, engine covers, fans, fluid bottles/containers/reservoirs, HVAC equipment, plugs, shrouds and much more.

Materials for under the hood:

Wiring and Cabling

Wiring and Cabling

Our recommended materials for automotive wire and cabling and jacketing applications can be designed to be flexible; chemical, weather, flame and ozone resistant; withstand low temperatures and have excellent physical and mechanical properties that can be alternative to rubber solutions.

Materials for wiring and cabling:

  • Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Compounds
  • Polyolefin
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Compound
