Sample text

For instance, SMC compounds contain a liquid, syrupy unsaturated polyester or vinylester resin. Recyclate: this indicates a polymer which has been recycled. Recyclates can have somewhat inferior properties compared to first class material. It is therefore often blended with virgin material. Recycling: refers to the reuse of the materials or components of scrapped cars. Legislation is arriving in Europe, the end of life vehicle regulations requiring a minimum of 85% recyclability. A careful selection of polymeric materials is necessary since the plastic parts need to be ground and mixed with virgin plastic.

Cycle time: indicates the time between the start of a polymer conversion process cycle, such as in injection moulding or compression moulding and the beginning of the next cycle. Automotive Plastics & Composites 7 1 Introduction DIN: Deutsche Institut fiir Normung, the German Standards for characterisation and definition of materials, similar to ASTM and ISO. Fatigue: a process of subjecting parts to cyclic loading, which may cause cracks or fracture. Fatigue strength is the number of cycles of stress or strain of a specific character that a given specimen sustains before failure.

The rubber component imparts high impact strength, while the acrylonitrile gives resistance to chemical stress-cracking. Due to the polybutadiene component, the UV resistance is not very good. ABS has traditionally been used in a number of car interior applications such as the rigid parts of instrument panels and doors, consoles, glove boxes, HVAC parts and loudspeaker housings. It is also used in chrome-plated parts. For exterior applications such as radiator grilles, wheel covers, mirrors and rear light housings, painting is necessary unless the colour is dark grey, black or the part is chrome-plated.
