BAYFLEX: A New Material for Elastomeric Bumpers and Body Parts 741023

This paper is devoted to the development of polyurethane raw materials for elastomeric exterior body parts and the potential use of such BAYFLEX parts in these applications.
The results of the development of these types of urethane elastomers were demonstrated in 1974 with the production of flexible exterior body parts from BAYFLEX 100 SR at Krauss Maffei in Munich. This successful demonstration represents only a beginning for the large scale use of elastomeric exterior body components in automotive applications.
