Evaluation of Aesthetic and Reflective Performance of Direct Metallized Resins for Automotive Lighting 2003-01-0649

The aesthetic requirements for rear combination lamps have risen due to the increased use of optic free lens. The objective of this study was to develop a methodology to characterize the relative aesthetic performance for thermoplastic resins utilized for rear combination lamp housings. This study focuses upon the use of a direct metallization process. The results of this study will allow project engineers to better understand the relative performance of various materials.
