Interior

Dashboard and Floor Console

Dashboard and floor console are key components of a vehicle's interior design, influencing a consumer's experience in the car. In turn, this consumer experience plays a vital role in customer satisfaction and brand profiling. The interior needs to visually appeal to the consumer, reflecting the use of high quality of materials.

Moreover, dashboard plays a crucial role in protecting occupants in the event of frontal impact incidents. Dashboards must comply with head impact and passenger airbag deployment requirements. This necessitates excellent mechanical properties which also help meet the demands of crash tests.

In order to meet the quality perception demands of consumers, Vehicle Manufacturers (OEMs) require materials with high aesthetic performance, including:

  • Good Haptics (surface feel),
  • Excellent scratch resistance,
  • Low gloss,
  • Colours

And meanwhile, components are required to meet mechanical and processable performance. Therefore the main materials requirements for dashboards should include:

  • Excellent stiffness and strength
  • Excellent impact resistance over a wide temperature range
  • High dimensional stability,
  • Wide processing window,
  • Lower VOC, fogging and odor

These material properties will enable OEMs to produce components and parts for their interior which are consistent in surface quality, ensuring an excellent overall optical effect and a high standard of performance.

In addition to our polypropylene (PP) resins, Borealis & Borouge also work in close co-operation with the OEM and Tier 1 and can offer state-of-the-art CAED engineering support.

 

Door panels

Door panel is key components of a vehicle's interior design, influencing a consumer's experience in the car. In turn, this consumer experience plays a vital role in customer satisfaction and brand profiling. The interior needs to visually appeal to the consumer, reflecting the use of high quality of materials.

Door panel plays a crucial role in protecting occupants in the event of side impact incidents. Side door panels must resist splintering upon impact or side impact from airbags. This necessitates excellent mechanical properties which also help meet the demands of crash tests.

In order to meet the quality perception demands of consumers, Vehicle Manufacturers (OEMs) require materials with high aesthetic performance, including:

  • Good Haptics (surface feel),
  • Excellent scratch resistance,
  • Low gloss,
  • Colours

And meanwhile, components are required to meet mechanical and processable performance, so the main materials requirements for interior components include:

  • Excellent stiffness and strength
  • Excellent impact resistance over a wide temperature range
  • High dimensional stability,
  • Wide processing window,
  • Lower density (weight saving)
  • Lower VOC, fogging and odor

These material properties will enable OEMs to produce components and parts for their interior which are consistent in surface quality, ensuring an excellent overall optical effect and a high standard of performance.

To cope with cost pressure, the automotive industry needs to find ways to increase productivity at reduced scrap rates, as well as reducing development cycle.

In addition to our polypropylene (PP) resins, Borealis & Borouge also work in close co-operation with the OEM and Tier 1 and can offer state-of-the-art CAED engineering support.

 

Interior Trims

Interior trim includes A/B/C upper panel, lower panel and sill plate, and they are all key components of a vehicle's interior design, influencing a consumer's experience in the car. In turn, this consumer experience plays a vital role in customer satisfaction and brand profiling. The interior needs to visually appeal to the consumer, reflecting the use of high quality of materials.
