About Automotive Surfaces

Advances in the field of decorative and functional automotive surfaces

    The interaction between man and machine has become increasingly important in the age of the smart phone, and demands for car surfaces' look, feel and usability continues to be a priority in car manufacture.
A variety of dedicated processes and technologies has 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. 
However new approaches are also appearing recently, not just to create decoration, but to integrate functionality into surfaces using the in-mould decoration process. 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 introducing scratch resistance, self-healing elements and water repellence to make finishes robust to potential damage.
European Plastics News Automotive Surfaces' Automotive Surfaces conference, held in Berlin on the 26th and 27th November, will  attract and connect OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and plastics companies, and examine exciting developments in the sector  as the boundaries between drivers, vehicles, and smartphones begin to dissolve.
