Case Study

Improved Formulation for Industrial Plastics Molder

Collaboration and speedy turnaround save the day

A large, industrial molder ran up against a processing problem when the approved high-performance elastomer specified for an SUV bumper application was under performing while in the tool. Known for its flexibility and processing ease, the original material wasn’t flowing properly, even with technical support and troubleshooting. The application required a material with higher flow potential, but as suppliers to auto OEMs well know, it was too late to deviate from the approved-materials list or to get a new material approved. The molder needed help fast to avoid costly losses.

Working closely with both the Tier 1 and Tier 2 molders and the OEM, Nexeo Plastics learned that a new material would not require additional approval if it remained consistent with the approved data sheet specifications and if it passed elongation and durometer (hardness) testing.
