Event: JSAE Spring Conference
A new automotive interior component material, TSOP-5 has been developed by refining the technology utilized to develop TSOP-1, the high modulus and high flow material for bumper covers. This new interior component material has excellent molding capability (MI=30dg/min.) yet still maintains high impact resistance which enables the material to be used in areas such as the dashboard as well as trim covers required to meet the FMVSS 214, the new side impact regulation or the FMVSS 201, the new soft upper trim regulation.
