Plastic is widely used as an integral part of modern cars. In fact, on average, about 150 kg of plastic is used in a vehicle.
Building today’s cars requires materials that help protect occupants, produce cheaper, cleaner, and less energy-efficient vehicles, and maintain a vehicle’s lifespan, typically 10-15 years. Plastics, including soft PVC, have played a very important role in light weight and improved performance and efficiency.
PVC car components that are used today are sun visors, synthetic leather seat covers, headrests, door handles, seat covers, car gear levers, floor coverings and protective strips.
The advantages of using PVC compounds in cars :
– Controlled oxygen and water vapor transfer
– Soft and anti-scratch skins for the dashboard
– Cold resistance
– UV stability
– light weight
Khorram Plastic Company has been able to produce a wide range of compounds used in the automotive industry and provide them to the producers of these products, according to its capabilities and potential.
