A Production Proven Polyurethane Skin Technology for Interior Trim Parts 950442

Interior design engineers can now utilize the latest production technology to meet the increasing demands for automotive interior trim. Colo-fast® SPR is a polyurethane spray technology which can provide flowing interior designs with soft touch, low gloss, consistent color and ten year durability; all without post painting. Besides providing these design features, this spray urethane system is production proven for high volume automotive requirements. Production plants using this technology are running at rates of more than 650 car sets per day. One car set includes an upper instrument panel, a lower instrument panel, a center console, a console cover, an airbag cover and a glove box door. Future production parts will include full door panels in two tone color schemes.
This paper presents durability data for spray urethane. In doing so, it confirms the capability of this system to provide the long term durability and feel desired by automotive engineers. Equally important, this paper describes in detail the production process as it is currently performed for typical automotive production volumes.
