Development of PVC Coextruded onto Stainless Steel Clad Aluminum Trim 860526

Stainless steel clad aluminum has been used for exterior automotive trim for many years because of its unique bright, corrosion resistant properties. Recent styling trends have led to the use of black plastic to partially cover the stainless steel surface providing a “black on bright” trim system. The most economical process for manufacture of these systems is coextrusion of PVC onto bimetal during the roll forming process. This paper describes the process for manufacture of stainless steel clad aluminum and for coextrusion of PVC onto the bimetal. Important process steps which are covered include roll bond preparation, roll bonding, buffing, coextrusion preparation, surface treatment, adhesive application and coextrusion.
