The headlight bezel demands a unique balance of properties, including a smooth surface with no warping. Vydyne 21SPG1 and 22HSP can be vacuum-metallized without a surface pretreatment. The intense heat generated by headlights can exceed the capabilities of traditional materials like PC and PBT. Vydyne PA66 offers a cost-competitive, high-temperature alternative.
Ascend’s Vydyne 21SPG1 is ideal for this application due to its superior balance of properties allowing for part design that meets the demanding headlight environment and still has an outstanding appearance. The Ascend automotive team employed years of automotive experience in creating optimal parts for Chrysler,® Ford,® General Motors® and Toyota.®
