SCGC™ PP P765J – Ultra-High Impact Polypropylene Copolymer Ultra-High Impact Resistance for Passenger Safety

Publish On 22, Mar 2022 | SCGC™ PP P765J – Ultra-High Impact Polypropylene Copolymer Ultra-High Impact Resistance for Passenger Safety

   According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) reports, Thailand ranks No. 9 worldwide and No. 1 in Asia in road accidents, with the fatality rate rising year on year during holidays where people make long commutes.

 

   Innovation is a tool that can enhance road safety. As automotive equipment and parts can contribute to road accidents, automakers are now placing greater emphasis on designs and actively developing products for the greater safety of motorists.

 

 

SCGC™ PP P765J and Automotive Parts

 

   SCG Chemicals (SCGC) has collaborated with Grand Siam Composite Co., Ltd. (GSC) to develop SCGC™ PP P765J, a plastic resin that offers greater safety for drivers and passengers and is designed for the manufacturing of door trims, instrumental panels, and front-rear bumpers.

 

   Boasting ultra-high impact resistance and high flow, this new innovative plastic resin lends itself perfectly to interior and exterior automotive parts that may be exposed to high impact. Thanks to the high elongation and ductility, auto parts made with this material can help reduce injuries for both drivers and passengers in the event of an accident.

 

   Another relevant aspect is the safety of the passengers while inside the vehicle. As SCGC™ PP P765J releases low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is still within the safe level, vehicle users can be assured that this material be used in instrumental panels and other interior parts without adversely affecting their health.

 

 

SCGC™ PP P765J and Automotive Trends

 

   Automakers are now seeking lightweight auto parts in response to the trend of greenhouse gas emission reduction throughout the process, from manufacturing to when the vehicles are actually used on the road.

 

   As it features an increased proportion of plastic while retaining the same level of strength, this new copolymer can produce lighter auto parts and maintain, if not enhance, the functional efficiency, answering the needs of the current trends for both lightweight and energy-saving vehicles.

 

 

   As for automakers, using SCGC™ PP P765J in auto parts can help reduce the need for impact modifiers in PP compound-based products by as much as 10%, thus reducing production costs, giving them better cost control and a competitive edge.

 

   SCGC continues to strive to develop specialty PP resins in response to new trends and needs of the automotive industry and adopt cutting-edge innovations to deliver products that cater to all customer groups, from entrepreneurs to consumers, to give them confidence in their daily life.
