AGS Injection Molding Solution

Under compressed timing, AGS Technology managed the new tool build and submitted PPAP using AGS Injectoblend FPP135. With its inherent low specific gravity, this 100% recycled polypropylene copolymer kept part cost and weight to a minimum to the delight of the value/performance obsessed Corvette engineering team.
