Leading the World in Automotive Polyolefin Compounding Technology

High-Performance Pillar Materials

The Insurance Institution of Highway Safety (IIHS) has determined that side airbag (SAB) systems can significantly improve passenger safety, and automotive manufacturers are including these systems in an increasing number of their vehicles. However, upon deployment, SAB systems generate extreme forces that can easily shatter conventional thermoplastic trim materials, resulting in the generation of sharp fractures and dangerous, high-speed projectiles, especially at cold temperatures. Advanced Composites has a complete series of TPO products designed specifically for use in conjunction with SAB systems. These TPO products meet the most demanding specifications for impact-strength, even at temperatures as low as -40°C.
