LIGHTWEIGHT RRIM BODY PANELS RESIST CORROSION AND DAMAGE

Researchers at Jefferson Chemical Co. are evaluating the use of reinforced reaction injection molded (RRIM) urethanes for exterior automotive parts. RRIM parts can offer weight savings over metal parts and corrosion resistance. Problems in the areas of strength and thermal expansion are being worked out.
