Polymers compounded to your specifications

Automotive & Transportation

PCL’s offer of excellent product consistency, fast colour match, flexibility on the ordered quantity and short lead time is extremely attractive for the Automotive and Transportation industry.

PCL is ISO 9001:2008 certified, and thanks to our thorough physical and analytical testing capability, we are able to support OEMs and Tier-1s in their material selection.

Most of the applications in this sector use our high-heat ABSCOM® grades, our PC/ABS-COM™ or our ASA-COM™ products, either for interior or exterior use, allowing for paint elimination when desired.

This is one of our key growth areas and we are trusted by some of the bigger names in the industry. Please contact us and tell us how we can help.

All our products are manufactured with very strict colour tolerances and consistent gloss level.

Our customers are telling us how much this is essential for applications where different parts are made at different moulders, in order to enhance product aesthetic and avoid a high level of reject at final assembly.
