One-step processing technology of anti-UV polyurethane material

One-step processing technology of anti-UV polyurethane material
The light stable surface decoration material in RIM technology has a short production cycle and good mold replication.

Leverkusen, October 2007 - Bright, light-stable surface finishes made of polyurethane materials are now ready for production through the Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) process. This is the result of close cooperation between Bayer MaterialScience and the Faurecia Group. Faurecia is mainly engaged in the production of large-volume surface decoration materials for medium and high-end automobiles. The two parties worked together to optimize the production process and the aliphatic polyurethane material system to produce high quality interior materials in pre-production molds. Gregor Murlowski, polyurethane surface material specialist at Bayer MaterialScience's Polyurethanes business unit, said: "As a polyurethane body material coating technology and in-mold coating RIM technology, this solution has a high cost performance. We have already anticipated the huge application of this material. Potential, especially as surface finish materials for automotive and commercial vehicle interior components such as instrument panels, armrests, center consoles and door trims.” Light-stabilized Bayflex® LS (light stable) is the new technology Made of polyurethane material.
The aliphatic RIM surface material is produced in a one-step process and is therefore more cost-effective than the mold internal coating (IMC). In this method, the decorative coating is first sprayed into the mold, and the second step is the aromatic polyurethane material system by RIM technology. injection. However, despite the high quality of the polyurethane surface material produced by this method, the two-step processing cycle is longer, and the investment in molds and equipment is greater. These disadvantages must be considered.
The production of polyurethane surface spray materials in open molds also causes unnecessary material build-up, resulting in an irregular touch on the surface of the material.
“By comparing, even when the edge of the material is difficult to measure or the geometry is complex, the RIM process can accurately determine the thickness of the material wall when the nozzle cannot be accurately positioned. This prevents the material from accumulating,” explains Murlowski. This high degree of precision in determining the wall thickness of the material allows the seam connection of the concealed airbag to be accurate. The greater advantage of the RIM process is that it can reduce costs. Murlowski revealed: "Based on the parts in production, we expect this process to be 50% faster than polyurethane surface coating technology."
Compared to other materials, Bayflex® LS is based on UV-resistant aliphatic polyurethane materials, which means it can be painted in bright colors. The production of colored RIM surface materials has been optimized in terms of material flowability, depth of break, feel and scratch resistance. Bayflex® LS can be used to produce matte, dazzling surfaces.
Bayer MaterialScience offers more ideal materials for manufacturers of polyurethane surface finishes using the new RIM process. The company conducts rigorous surface material testing in accordance with OEM specifications such as heat aging, photoaging, volatility and tensile strength. Company services also include support for mold design processes and software to optimize flow and castability.
