Surveying recent developments in coating polymers and plastics in the automotive industry, this book examines proper materials selection, basic processing mechanics, process selection based on cost and coating mechanics, molding, and performance and durability assessments. Techniques for salvaging plastics from used vehicles are highlighted, and North American and European techniques for coating plastics in the automotive industry are compared. The editors are members of the Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology.

Blow molding is utilized in these applications due to substantially lower tooling costs over injection molding. ... Several plastic types are utilized, with the majority of the applications now seeking lower cost through the use of mold-in-color polyolefins. ... Each of these substrates can then be either painted or askinneda to achieve the asoft-feel.
