In the ever-changing landscape of the automotive industry, success hinges on innovation and sustainability. At PolymaxTPE, we continue to push the boundaries of innovation while remaining committed to sustainability. One of the ways we’re doing so is by addressing the needs of the automotive floor mat and trunk liner market with a focus on sustainable products.
Addressing Market Needs
The automotive industry has a consistent demand for high-quality floor and trunk mat liners. These components are not just about aesthetics; they must meet stringent performance criteria, including durability, weather resistance, and compliance with OEM requirements. PolymaxTPE has taken up the challenge of meeting these market demands head-on with two groundbreaking products making waves in the automotive industry: P32-061 and RP32-001.
P32-061: The Standard for Automotive Floor Mat Manufacturing
PolymaxTPE worked diligently to align with the specific requirements of automotive OEMs with the development of P32-061, setting a new standard for automotive floor mat manufacturing. Our durometer for this product is 90A, but within our product line, we offer durometer ranges of 50A to 90A to cater to a variety of applications. Key features of P32-061 include:
- Low odor for a pleasant driving experience
- Excellent heat and weather resistance to ensure the longevity of automotive floor mats
- Good flowability for easy processing
- Abrasion resistance and durability to handle the wear and tear of daily use while maintaining product integrity
- Superior aesthetics for a polished look with minimal flow lines
- Compliance with major OEM requirements
- Low density to reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency
- Versatility, with the ability to be used as a standalone product or overmolded to Polypropylene (PP)
RP32-001: Another Sustainable, Low-Odor Option
To continue our effort to find sustainability-based products, PolymaxTPE has developed RP32-001. This product is a testament to our commitment to meeting market demands while positively impacting the environment. In addition to the features of P32-061, RP32-001 has been developed to incorporate up to 35% post-consumer recycled (PCR) products, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint for a greener future.
