Styron expands the PULSE GX series of tailor-made solutions for automotive interiors to include the PULSE GX70 and GX90. The line, which also includes the GX50 launched in 2011, offers resins made of a polycarbonate (PC) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) blend that provide easy flow and are more cost-efficient in comparison to conventional PC/ABS materials, claims the company. The PULSE GX70 demonstrates desirable low temperature ductility in conjunction with UV and thermal stability as well as low odor and low carbon emissions, which is standard for all PULSE products. The PULSE GX90 is designed for niche applications that require further heat resistance than PULSE GX50 and PULSE GX70 offer. Its low temperature ductility is specifically targeted for direct airbag exposure of upper pillar trims.
