Structural Feasibility of Injection Molded and Compression Molded Front Seat Bases 920496

Two front seat base designs were developed using finite element analysis methods to meet automotive OEM requirements. The material-process combinations explored were injection molded VALOX® HS433 polyester resin and compression molded continuous glass reinforced AZDEL® PM10400 polypropylene composite material. The optimized seat bases weigh under two pounds and meet four automotive load-deflection requirements: Anti-submarining, ingress/egress, front crossbar and rear crossbar loads.
