DENSBAK Automotive heavy layers
Niko’s standard DENSBAK F40 automotive heavy layer is the preferred choice for Tier 1 automotive companies in the UK.
Our automotive heavy layers are designed to accommodate a wide range of processing conditions. Niko automotive heavy mass layers can be combined and supplied with a wide range of substrates (for example, films, barrier layers, non-wovens, TPOs, pressure sensitive adhesives and hotmelts) to form multi-layer composites in hot or cold tool moulding processes.
Growing environmental requirements have seen a trend towards lighter weight mass layers. Niko heavy layer solutions have been at the heart of this change with DENSBAK products suitable for thermoforming starting at just 1000gms/m2. Yet even at these low weights DENSBAK Automotive heavy layers can still provide the same key performance features of thermal stability coupled with low odour, low VOC, and low fogging benefits.
Through Niko’s production and process technology, which utilises its proprietary DENSBAK formulations, Niko can provide our customers with opportunities for blank size reductions and significantly improve process foam curing and moulding cycle times.
We have also developed new automotive heavy layer formulations with higher filler acceptance levels, whilst still maintaining the same key performance characteristics.
What is DENSBAK F40 Range?
Our automotive heavy layer is a thermoplastic elastomeric material, which is composed of a blend of polymers compounded with mineral fillers. It is designed to possess high elongation at elevated temperatures and is particularly suitable for thermoforming. DENSBAK F40 range is available in a variety of weights and has surface treatments as an adhesion promoter.
DENSBAK F40 can be supplied with a wide range of substrates to form multi-layer composites in hot or cold tool moulding processes.
