About Automotive Surfaces
Plastics News Europe Automotive Surfaces conference, held in Berlin on the 18th and 19th November, will attract and connect OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and plastics companies to examine exciting developments in the sector as boundaries between drivers, vehicles, and smartphones begin to dissolve.
The interaction between man and machine has become increasingly important and demands for car surfaces' protective coatings, look, feel and usability continues to be a priority in car manufacturing.
A variety of dedicated process and technologies have been developed over the years to produce desired surface properties and create added value for the user.
Well established are multi-component injection moulding, in-mould labelling and in-mould decoration with films and fabrics.
New approaches are appearing, not just to create decoration, but to integrate functionality into surfaces. Circuitry and electronics are being embedded, whereby direct interaction with a sensitive surface allows drivers to use gentle touches and waving to control consoles. At the same time, new methods of creating protective elements of interior surfaces are coming on the market including scratch resistance, self-healing water repellent to make finishes robust to damage.
