Customer Issue

A Tier 1 supplier to Chrysler was looking for an alternative to replace a discontinued grade of glass reinforced SMA (Dylark™) on a structural, non-appearance, headliner component.

AGS Injection Molding Solution

AGS Technology developed Injectoblend™ DP3 glass filled polypropylene to replace the specified Dylark™ 480P16. In addition to lower piece part cost savings, the Injectoblend™ DP3 incorporates recycled automotive headliner scrap into its formulation.

The Injectoblend™ DP3 material meets FMVSS302 and Chrysler part specific outside design and development (ODD) performance criteria.
