Material Solutions for Vehicle Lighting Systems
From the soothing glow coming from the radio to the signaling blink coming from the taillight, a vehicle’s lighting system is critical to its look, feel, and safety. Create interior and exterior lighting with attention-getting color and clarity by choosing the right materials. Our technologies for lighting systems control heat, allow for maximum output, and withstand harsh conditions inside and outside the car.
- LED light output is affected by temperature - replace metal heat sinks with Therma-Tech™ materials to keep your lights cooler and running longer
- Liquid and solid masterbatch colorants differentiate exterior lights—often without adding enormous cost
- Lighting systems that incorporate materials from PolyOne’s portfolio of long- and continuous-fiber composites are more likely to maintain the integrity of their design
|Therma-Tech™||Thermally conducive materials||Low coefficient of thermal expansion||Inherent corrosion/oxidation resistance|
|Colorant Chromatics™||Conductive Formulations||Static dissipation||Controlled conductivity|
|OnFlex™||Thermoplastic Elastomers||High heat and chemical resistance||Weatherable|
