Soform from Asahi Kasei Plastics is a specialty soft-touch polypropylene for automotive interior applications. The patent-pending material improves interiors by delivering a soft-to-the-touch surface while retaining its integrity as a structural lightweight plastic. Soform’s development is based on haptics; automotive components designed to be touched provide OEMs new opportunities for positive consumer interaction and deliver a positive consumer experience. With the capability to be directly single-shot injection molded, Soform is suitable for trim parts and components including interior door panels and other surfaces where a good tactile experience is desired. It is available in a range of physical properties, such as flexural modulus, hardness, tensile elongation, and gloss, and it's moldable in any color and texture.
