With the completion of nine reinforced reaction injection molding prototype programs at Davidson, the feasibility of producing RRIM automotive body panels has been demonstrated. The advantages RRIM offers to the automotive industry are documented by data obtained in these programs and emphasized with an in-depth case study of one part. A set of material and design guidelines is presented which will help to ensure successful realization of RRIM's benefits.
