Smart Foil Door-Trim Technology

This innovative door trim technology offers improved performance at lower cost than conventional in-mold grained, interior trim components while reducing weight 5%, direct costs 7%, and indirect costs 3%. Thanks to a special TPO material specifically developed for this application and a proprietary in-mold process technology (where a skin is inserted into an injection mold before the tool is shut and a substrate is injected behind to create the trim panel), the need for adhesive and a secondary process step and fixture are eliminated. Further, this Smart Foil technology eliminates any issue with projectiles during low-temperature side-impact events. The result is a door-trim skin/foil that offers lower abrasion and less scratch & mar, resulting in improved customer satisfaction while also lowering VOC emissions (by eliminating adhesive) as well as costs and weight.
