A New Dimension in Automotive Trim 850529

Colamco has developed new technologies which have many advantages for automotive soft interior trim applications. The process is particularly suited to molded seat production but has proven to be flexible enough for use on any interior surface. The process combines standard polyether urethane foam with fabric or vinyl and any desired backing material to achieve highly styled parts both in 3-dimensional shaping and embossed designs. Products may also exhibit further characteristics such as softness, multi-densities, full breath-ability, and high durability, as well as noise reduction and acoustical insulation.
In the report we will discuss Colamco Technology, materials requirements, automotive seat molding, inherent differences between the Colamco technology and other processes, and special applications of the technology. Emphasis will be on automotive molded seating.
