Santoprene™ TPVs in the Volkswagen T5 Multivan and Beetle

Creating a skin over a polypropylene (PP) core, Santoprene xxM350 TPV is used to produce a top roll component of the door trim with an integrated arm rest in the Volkswagen Multivan and the glove box in the Volkswagen Beetle. In both applications, Santoprene xxM350 TPV meets stringent specifications for low fogging and odor and creates components that exhibit:

  • Low gloss
  • “Comfort touch”
  • Temperature stability
  • Durability and scratch resistance

Santoprene xxM350 TPV requires no secondary processing and produces no flow lines, due to its low dynamic viscosity.
