Elix’s anti-noise solution approved. ELIX Polymers secures crucial validation from a prominent German automotive firm for their specialty anti-squeak polymers.

The materials, advanced grades of ABS and PC/ABS, have been crafted to nullify the disconcerting noise from plastic parts rubbing against each other or different materials.

They’ve received an affirmative nod for inclusion in future vehicle production.

The quiet operation of the increasingly popular electric and hybrid vehicles makes these sound-dampening materials all the more necessary.

These ELIX materials effectively address the noise issue by being destined for a broad array of interior components, such as armrests, door handles, and sunroofs.

Thorough stick-slip tests underscore the materials’ excellent performance, as they obtained exceptionally low risk scores.

The base polymers used in these new grades retain their original characteristics, thereby preserving existing OEM approvals.

These products offer considerable cost efficiency by obviating the need for additional noise reduction elements after parts injection and assembly.

ELIX Polymers’ focus on delivering value-added, bespoke solutions through strong collaboration with key automotive OEMs is reflected in this step.
