PolyOne Develops High-Performance Solutions for Auto Interiors

Plastics Business

PolyOne Corporation, Cleveland, OH, has introduced two new formulations for automotive interior surfaces and instrument panels.

Both Geon™ VBX 3577, a vinyl powder for automotive interior surfaces, and Geon™ VBX 3600, a series for instrument panels with seamless airbags, can deliver cycle time reduction benefits. These allow processors to improve profitability while meeting tough low-temperature OEM performance requirements for slush-molded automotive interior parts. During trial testing versus existing materials, both solutions displayed a 15-percent reduction in cycle time and decreased energy costs, resulting in higher production efficiency.
