Automotive & Transportation
Plastic materials must meet stringent requirements for the automotive and transportation industries. Parts molded from A. Schulman materials are subjected to a very broad range of uses and environments, so they must meet or exceed color and appearance standards.
On the exterior of a vehicle, components such as bumper fascias, claddings, rocker panels, body side and wheel lip moldings, roof ditch moldings, and grilles must withstand extremes in temperature as well as intense sunlight.
In the interior of a vehicle, plastic parts such as pillar trim moldings, door trim, instrument panels, consoles, armrests, grip handles, seat backs, and knee bolsters are required to meet impact regulations while withstanding significant temperatures.
