Bayhydrol® U/UH creates luxurious, low-solvent emission auto interiors
Automotive interiors are becoming increasingly important, as visual appearance has become a dominant influence on a buyer’s perception of vehicle quality. Moreover, the quality feel and finish of an automotive interior have a major impact on a consumer’s buying decision. Decorative films are used in a lot of applications to achieve this objective.
Covestro’s PU dispersions were the toolbox that enabled our innovation process. Having invested early in the development of waterborne coating technology, Benecke-Hornschuch Surface Group is now able to offer Xpreshn® films that combine design, processing and quality advantages.
