As the principal protector of underbody wear-resistant coating, sealants against humidity and other protective profiles, TPE and PVC thermoplastic car parts are invaluable for automotive manufacturers. The durability of PVC and TPE parts for cars has made them the first choices for cladding interior parts like dashboards and door panels.
TPE & PVC Thermoplastics for Automotive Applications Help Conserve Fossil Fuels
Both TPE and PVC parts for cars have comparatively low energy consumption during manufacturing, thereby reducing the depletion of natural resources compared to alternatives. TPE and PVC in cars can also contribute to a naturally low carbon footprint due to their lightness compared to traditional materials. In other words, the reduced weight of a vehicle helps reduce fuel consumption.
PVC & TPE For Automotive Applications Can Help Protect Lives
TPE and PVC thermoplastics are important in shock-absorbing vehicle components such as "soft" dashboards, used to reduce injury in the case of impact. Thermoplastic parts for cars are often used in life-saving vehicle airbags, and their fire retardant properties contribute to the overall safety of any vehicle.
TPE & PVC In Cars Can Increase Design Freedom
Americhem PVC and TPE for automotive interior and exterior applications allow even the most challenging designs to enhance a vehicle's comfort. Thermoplastic car parts can be made to showcase many attractive qualities of appearance and color.
TPE & PVC Increase Vehicle Affordability
