The automotive industry is constantly lightening the weight of the average car.
The lower weight of each vehicle means less fuel consumption and more comfort when people drive.
XLPE foams are not hard to be found in all various kinds of vehicles, such as commercial and private small vehicles, buses and coaches. Cross-linked polyethylene Foam(Huzhou CYG also can supply polypropylene foam) materials can be widely used in applications.
Soft trim applications, indoors, dashboards, headliners, seats, etc. most often require lamination or adhesion to a PVC or TPO liner and then a subsequent vacuum / thermoforming or compression molding type process to shape into the required part.
Some of the XLPE foam materials used in automotive undergo complex design and heat forming processes, whilst others are just "cut and stuck".
a) Waterproof door panel
b) Automotive air duct
(IXPE foam material) (IXPP foam material)
c) Headrest inner lining material
e) roof/ceiling liner
