Kraton's new slush moulding product available for testing

"We are engaging several original equipment manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers throughout the automotive industry," said Christian Kafka, Global Market Development Manager, Kraton Performance Polymers. "They recognise that our new offering for interior surfaces fulfills properties for both the slush molding process and ongoing material qualifications while also addressing demands for environmentally-sustainable solutions that offer lighter-weight, higher-performance and low VOCs," he added.With the new product, manufacturers of instrument panel skins, door panels, airbags and consoles can achieve improvements in low-temperature performance, fogging, and recyclability while still using their existing slush moulding equipment and standard processing conditions. As an additional benefit lowered manufacturing costs due to reduced service temperatures and decreased processing time can be achieved.
