In addition to their use for interior items, plastics are increasingly being used on the exterior of vehicles. Colour-coated film materials can be used to substitute complex coating processes.
The goal is to create a top-class surface finish. This is done by using a positive highly-polished vacuum-capable thermoforming tool to form the components in clean-room conditions. The subsequent back-injection or back-pressing process provides the required dimensional stability.
Kiefel ensures optimum compatibility for the entire process sequence used in the thermoforming of coated film materials:
