Geon™ VBX Series Vinyl Powder Formulations

Geon™ VBX Series

Varied applications for automotive interiors

Geon™ VBX Series Vinyl Powders provide automotive OEMs superior haptics for automotive interior parts such as door panels, instrument panels, instrument panel airbag doors and center consoles.  They are ideal for slush molding processes, when applications require a thin, uniform wall thickness.

Slush molding produces hollow, flexible items by filling a mold with vinyl powder, heating it sufficiently to gel a layer next to the inner mold surface and removing the excess powder. The gelled layer is then completely fused and stripped from the mold. Rotational casting consists of a two-part mold filled with a predetermined weight of vinyl powder, inserted into a heated oven and rotated on the mold wall on two planes simultaneously.

Our vinyl powders can be formulated and certified for end-use automotive, FDA, UL, ASTM, NSF, USDA, military, medical or customer-specific applications. To expedite product acceptance and qualification, PolyOne has received multiple OEM approvals for Geon VBX Series Vinyl Powders.
