RTP Company has launched a range of products with low VOCs for automotive interior applications.
RTP Company has expanded its Very Long Fibre reinforced Polypropylene (PP VLF) portfolio to include a range of low emission products.
These PP VLF products satisfy Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) mandates to reduce the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) levels found in thermoplastic materials specified for use in automotive interior applications, says RTP. International legislation and automotive OEMs have identified the need to reduce odour, fogging, and total VOCs to improve air quality and the safety of vehicle interiors.
“The global trend is to reduce Volatile Organic Compounds to meet increasingly tough OEM environmental standards,” explained Dave Pahl, RTP Company Automotive Market Manager. “Our challenge was to sort through the complexity of varying OEM specifications, test methods, and classifications to develop VLF compounds that meet the industry’s toughest emission requirements.”
Low emission PP VLF compounds fro m RTP Company are designed for structural use and are said to provide exceptional strength, stiffness, and dimensional accuracy.
The VLF compounds are designed for use in automotive interior applications such as instrument panels, door module carriers, overhead and center consoles, seating, load floors, pedal boxes, spare tyre covers and storage bins.
