Excellent Paintable Grade TOYOLAC™ has been developed to reduce material-induced painting defects in ABS and PC/ABS painted components.
Excellent Paintable Grade
As ABS resin provides excellent secondary processing quality for painting and plating, it is widely used in automotive components that require high-quality design (e.g. rear spoilers, back door trim, front grills, door mirrors).
- （１）Painting Issues
- Various coating defects can occur in the painting process during actual mass-production, including coating defects such as sinking and cratering on ABS and PC/ABS components. Resolving these issues requires adding primers or processes such as sanding and annealing of molded products, which can lead to increased workload and higher costs. This produced demand for a material that could eliminate the need for such measures.
|Characteristics and Causes|
- （２）Excellent Paintable Grade Characteristics
Excellent Paintable Grade TOYOLAC™ is specifically designed for painting, making use of Toray’s proprietary AS polymerization technology to increase sinking- and cratering-resistance through AS composition, molecular weight adjustment and stress-relieving design.
This material can reduce painting defect rates while eliminating the need for primers and annealing, helping reduce overall costs.
