Bayer MaterialScience LLC has developed a new grade of polycarbonate for automotive interior applications.
Bayblend LGX 300 is a PC blend low in gloss and with a high melt flow, allowing it to replicate different types of surface finishes for glove-box doors, door trim, knee bolsters and other components. The Pittsburgh company also said the new blend has higher heat performance, and better impact, scratch and mar resistance compared with polyolefin materials.
In addition to weather resistance, Bayblend LGX 300 is a low-emission formulation designed to reduce levels of volatile organic chemicals in auto interiors.
