Our wide range of advanced additives can help improve aesthetics and acoustics—and reduce processing steps
Quieter EVs mean more attention must be given to creating a tranquil cabin. A key challenge is managing acoustics, especially in areas where multiple materials meet. Plus, surfaces must look and feel good for the life of the vehicle. DuPont solutions provide lasting scratch and squeak resistance, and also can reduce processing steps.
Scratch resistance and noise reduction are two enormous challenges for designers of automotive interiors. When different materials like polypropylene and PC/ABS are used in adjoining interior components, annoying squeaks can detract from the driving experience. And when interior parts are scratched, a vehicle loses value. DuPont has developed additive solutions that help manage both of these challenges.
Our scratch-resistant additive solutions help improve long-lasting anti-scratch properties of automotive interiors by improving:
When you use versatile DuPont™ MULTIBASE™ additives, you also gain processing advantages. MULTIBASE™ delivers excellent—and permanent—anti-squeak performance to benefit many interior components, including:
