Economic production of lightweight decorative components
High surface quality thanks to dynamic temperature control
During the project Covestro worked closely with a number of partners: gwk Gesellschaft Wärme Kältetechnik in Meinerzhagen (temperature control processes), the tool manufacturer Krallmann, Hiddenhausen, and the company J. & F. KRÜTH in Solingen, which specializes in graining the surfaces of the tools, in this case a 3D laserstructure.
Unlimited design freedom
The strength of Covestro's interior concept lies in the countless design options that are available in terms of shape, color, surface structure and gloss level. In addition, the components can be further refined by coating, for example if chrome, leather, real wood or soft-feel surfaces are desired. Lighting effects such as ambient lighting are also possible with transparent and translucent polycarbonate grades. Polycarbonates and blends of the Makrolon®, Bayblend® and Makroblend® brands, as well as Makrofol® and Bayfol® films, have long proved their worth in the interiors of premium automobiles. This is due not least to their excellent crash properties and high surface quality.
