Polyolefins can be scratched during automotive assembly and customer use. Polymer materials used in automotive applications for exterior cladding, bumpers, interior instrument, door panels, and seating components need improved scratch and mar resistance. Irgasurf® SR 100 B from BTC is a new additive that is designed to improve scratch and mar resistance for automotive PP/TPO.
Irgasurf® SR 100 improves PP/TPO scratch resistance so that these polymers may be used to replace more traditional but costly engineering resins.
Irgasurf® SR 100 has been designed for automotive applications. Irgasurf® SR 100 B may be dosed to the polymer directly during injection moulding process step.
