Elastoskin® I/S

 

Elastoskin® is an aromatic PU sprayed skin (Elastoskin® S) or RIM skin (Elastoskin® I) for high-quality vehicle interior fittings that are pleasant to the touch-a 100% solid, two-component system-that is mixed before the spray nozzle, where upon it immediately begins to react.

 

Used in instrument and door panels of an increasing vehicular range, it costs less than PVC or other skin materials and is well positioned to be a good alternative in the process for surface creation and decoration in the automotive industry.
