Nowadays, plastic parts make up almost 20% of a car when measured by weight – and this percentage is increasing all the time. In particular, the efforts being made to reduce the weight of cars, and the potential fuel savings that can be achieved as a result, make using plastic parts an extremely attractive proposition. Greater design freedom and less complex assembly processes are also contributing factors. It is usually necessary to coat these parts both internally and externally. The coating helps to significantly increase the quality of the vehicle as a whole in terms of its visual impact, while also fulfilling haptic requirements. Of course, functional requirements for high-quality coatings, such as scratch resistance and weather resistance, are also important to Sprimag.
