Innovative tailgate spoiler

SpecialChem / Feb 8, 2010

The German automaker BMW, the Austrian plastic processing machine manufacturer Engel and the German molder Hofmann Innovation Group have joined forces to develop an innovative tailgate spoiler for the BMW 5-series vehicles that have been launched in September 2009. The new tailgate spoiler includes two components produced by injection molding from a rubber modified, 20% mineral filled PC/ABS blend i.e. Bayblendâ„¢ T90 MF-20 supplied by Bayer Material Science. These two PC/ABS parts are then bonded together with a thermoplastic elastomer i.e. Thermolast A TA7/AOZ grade from Kraiburg. As a result this eliminates the need to glue components together in a secondary operation.
