Development of primerless paintable thermoplastic polyolefin with high impact strength for vehicle interior parts 2000-05-0151

A new thermoplastic polyolefin with primerless adhesion to paint has been developed by polypropylene (PP) with α-olefin copolymers, mineral fillers and some additives. It can substantially reduce costs and environmental problems by eliminating primer treating operations, traditionally treated from trichloroethene (TCE). This new material exhibits unique solid-state texture that rubbery polymer component are typically dispersed in lamellar structure matrix. Versus conventional PP or thermoplastic olefin (TPO), it provides excellent brittle-ductile (BD) transition as well as paintability. Also it is expected to have a significant impact on interior parts as requirements for material change to an emphasis on light weight, lower cost, more efficient finishing.
