From strong sunlight to road and car wash chemicals, vehicle exteriors require a lot from their materials. Americhem’s TPE and PVC compounds are specified by exterior designers and engineers so that they know they can count on them standing up to this harsh environment. Available ionomer alloys can also replace high-gloss painted parts.
Whether you want PVC or TPE for Modular Window Encapsulation, Americhem has the product to maximize your production. Need a standard or high-heat TPE for 2-shot Air Inlet Panels or Cowl Vent Grills? We have just the products for high output and elevated temperature Engine-To-Cowl Seals.
Americhem has multiple solutions for Body Side Moldings such as integrally colored PVC, paintable PVC and extrudable foam cores for weight reduction.
Need even higher durability for integrally colored Rocker Panels, Fascias or Front End Modules? Americhem’s ionomer alloys provide the excellent scratch and mar performance in a high gloss solution.
For Seals, Belt Line Moldings and Profile Extrusions, we have the PVC, PVC alloys, and TPEs to suit your needs.
