Thermoplastic Solutions to Address Trends and Needs in Automotive Exterior and Interior Trim


Vehicles are changing in response to trends, new requirements, and increasingly complex designs. In this 30-minute Webinar, interior and exterior trim applications are the focus. How can engineering thermoplastic technologies help meet changing needs and produce the high-quality trim components that customers demand? This session addresses those questions and touches on relevant topics such as high-flow materials for lightweight thin-walled applications, RADAR design considerations for plastic-based trim parts, mechanically recycled solutions, and more.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
