Customer project: PU waste trunk floor
BASF empowers the future with its versatile and sustainable material solutions in co-creation projects.
Green & Light Automotive Components (Green & Light) and BASF jointly developed a trunk floor made with recycled PU waste using BASF’s PU binder Elastan® CC 6521. With BASF’s PU binder, trimming waste generated during the part manufacturing process can be used as a raw material to produce new semi-structural components such as trunk floors. The mechanical performance can also be adjusted by adding glass fibers. Compared to standard plywood boards, the PU waste trunk floor exhibited lower emissions and water uptake and increased lifetime and durability required of light vehicle interior parts.
