Abstract:
To improve the decoration of exterior automotive parts, we developed a new technology called Form - Trim - Inject (FTI). FTI is a very low cost investment process based on Insert Molding. Films can be produced either by roller coating / induction process or co-extrusion process.This article shows some results concerning aspect and glossiness that we observed during many trials which were necessary to develop a new knowledge on this technology. Any color, surface appearance and any graphic can be achieved by using FTI. FTI is also a very good answer to V.O.C. issues
