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. Celanese 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. Celanese 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 MULTIBASE® additives, you also gain processing advantages. MULTIBASE® delivers excellent—and permanent—anti-squeak performance to benefit many interior components, including:
Additives engineered to deliver multiple benefits for greater design freedom and production efficiencies.
