Interiors of vehicles place high demands on materials used within these environments. Americhem color concentrates, additives, and TPE and PVC compounds are designed to meet and exceed the rigors of this tough environment. They are tailored to the varied haptics required and are specified by OEM’s across the globe.
If you find yourself struggling to harmonize the interior of your vehicle with some of the latest challenging colors, Americhem can design Color Concentrates and Masterbatches for all your Interior plastic parts such as Instrument Panels, Doors, Hard Trim Center and Overhead Consoles, Air Management, and Seating.
While most TPEs have a “rubbery feel,” if you need a more “slippery” TPE for a Cup Holder, Arm Rest Skin, Console Skin, Door Bolster or Instrument Panel Skin, Americhem TPEs can be tailored to provide just the right haptics.
For thinner, longer injection molded Armrests and Console Skins, utilize Americhem’s high flow PVC Compounds. While Americhem can provide your standard “rubbery feel” TPEs for All-Weather Floor Mats, we can also provide Enhanced Scratch and Mar TPEs for parts that have minimal graining.
At Americhem, we are committed to developing polymeric solutions for our customers that face an array of challenges during their manufacturing processes.

Vehicle designers and stylists have realized that most people spend their time inside the vehicle, not outside. And, as autonomous vehicles become common, occupants will spend more time looking at the interior and not the road. This has led to automotive interiors evolving into high focus areas, where all the different plastics used must be harmonized to the same color or colors.
We specialize in coloring technology that promotes in-vehicle harmony across a variety of materials and manufacturing processes.
From high sun and heat loads in southern climates, to very cold temperatures in northern climates, vehicle interior parts must provide good performance and feel. Our thermoplastic compounds, polymeric alloys, and soft-touch TPEs & PVCs perform while providing manufacturing efficiencies and reduced waste.
From long lasting color to enhanced durability and feel, Americhem’s variety of products can help solve your tough interior issues, including:
