Sun Chemical offers an extensive range of screen printing, pad printing, electronic materials and specialty chemicals tailored specifically for the automotive industry. This marks Sun Chemical’s inaugural participation at this influential trade show, reaffirming its commitment to serving the automotive industry.
Decomold
Sun Chemical will be using the show as an opportunity to introduce its Decomold range of inks. Specifically designed for in-mold decoration and film insert molding, these innovative inks complement Sun Chemical’s existing range of functional inks. These inks enable automotive manufacturers to achieve a seamless and visually appealing integration of decoration and functionality into their components.
SunHytek
With a commitment to quality, innovation, and reliability, SunHytek, provides an ideal solution for automotive applications. SunHytek’s versatile line of inks is designed to meet the diverse demands of the automotive sector, whether for screen, pad, or digital printing. Sun Chemical inks can empower automotive projects with unparalleled quality and performance. The solutions can be tailored for all automotive applications.
SunTronic Electronic Materials
Sun Chemical will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of SunTronic electronic materials, with solutions specifically tailored to stretchable and In-Mold Electronics (IME) applications. This includes the latest generation of SunTronic IME inks, featuring top-quality dielectric and silver conductive inks, as well as thermoformable materials.
SunTronic’s extensive range of electronic materials empowers users to seamlessly integrate touch switches and lighting into IMD/FIM applications. These materials are built to withstand the most rigorous conditions of the injection molding process.
SunPad
Sun Chemical will also demonstrate its SunPad range of inks for pad printing. This product range offers a comprehensive selection of inks tailored for various automotive applications, including engine room decorative panels, alloy wheels, operation buttons, gear shifts, door trims, and smart keys.
The SunPad range is distinguished by its optimised formulations, ensuring peak machine performance, while also providing customised solutions to meet specific requirements. With a commitment to environmental responsibility, these inks are part of Sun Chemical’s eco-friendly systems, further emphasising the company’s dedication to delivering sustainable solutions.
Pigments
Sun Chemical will highlight its functional black pigments, which provide solutions for solar heat management. While dark surfaces with standard carbon black pigments intensively absorb solar energy and convert it to heat, Sicopal®, Xfast®, Microlith® and Spectrasense® functional black pigments and pigment preparations reflect solar radiation to keep dark surfaces cool.
For the most demanding polymers and processes Sun Chemical offers a broad range of coloring solutions (Sicopal®, Oracet®, Paliogen®, Cinquasia®, Cromophtal®) for engineering plastics and high heat polymers providing excellent processing, durability and heat resistance (e.g. for Orange for e-mobility). Our new portfolio of plastics colorants, certified with the ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX®, provides high purity and performance for demanding fiber applications.
In addition, pigment preparations that allow compounders to run the “Xtra Mile” will be presented. With Microlen® Piano Black, customers can expect unmatched jetness in plastics and outstanding dispersion quality that maintain the mechanical properties of the polymer.
Specialty Chemicals
Sun Chemical also offers a wide range of specialty materials for automotive interiors, including its latest range of water-based polyurethane resins, HYDRAN GP. These resins have a higher solid content and do not contain amines. They help reduce process times, odors, and emissions, making them a more environmentally-friendly option. Other highlights within this portfolio include acrylic emulsions featuring excellent adhesion, chemical resistance, gloss properties, and metallic pigment orientation; and a range of aromatic and aliphatic polyisocyanates and prepolymers suitable for various automotive applications.
Sun Chemical’s strong environmental and regulatory responsibility aligns with its focus on product excellence. The company is dedicated to sustainable and eco-friendly practices that align with industry regulations, emphasizing its commitment to environmentally responsible solutions.
Robin McMillan, Business Development Manager – Screen and Industrial Europe at Sun Chemical comments: “We’re proud to offer a comprehensive range of products to cater to all applications within the automotive industry, demonstrating our commitment to R&D within this area. Equally important to us is our strong environmental and regulatory stance. We are dedicated to sustainability and ensuring that our products align with the most stringent industry regulations. The Automotive Interiors Expo 2023 is a great opportunity for us to share our knowledge and technology, and we look forward to debuting at the show.”
