Soliant Fluorex® bright film, which mimics chrome, enabled winning entries in two categories at the 16th Annual SPE Thermoforming Parts Competition in Nashville, TN, September 16-20. Hendrickson Bumper and Trim received both the Automotive Award and the People's Choice Award for its thermoformed bumper end caps made with the film combined with TPO from Solvay Engineered Polymers, Inc. Profile Plastics Corporation thermoformed the parts with tooling supplied by Portage Casting & Mold. The film is designed to give the end cap a Class A finish with a chrome appearance without the expense and environmental issues of electroplating. According to Soliant, the film also makes the bumper end cap more durable and rust-resistant than plating on plastic or metal. When combined with TPO, added impact resistance is achieved.
