The new grade for interior applications, such as air vent parts

The new Terblend® S SG-02EF is a 8% glass-fibre reinforced grade with superior heat resistance and dimensional stability. It provides a cost-effective matte surface finish that doesn’t require painting.

A premium car manufacturer was looking for a low-emission grade with low-gloss finish and without the need to paint in order to optimise material savings. Automotive interior parts impose a particularly wide variety of requirements on the material used, such as high heat and scratch resistance. The new Terblend S SG-02EF is a low-emission and high-heat 8% GF PA/ ASA grade and features high heat resistance and excellent flow performance. The grade provides 5% material savings compared to conventional alternative painted PC/ ABS, due to reduced scrap rate.
