Elastolit® R



The outstanding feature of Elastolit® R—also a microcellular, almost solid material—is its high impact strength even at extremely low temperatures. The stiffness of molded parts can be increased still further by adding glass and mineral fibers as reinforcement.


Finished parts are used predominantly in the automotive sector for car exteriors (front and rear skirts, door sill scuff plates) and for commercial vehicles (large-format claddings, fenders, etc.). Finished part wall thicknesses generally range from 3 to 4 mm and mold release time from 30 to 180 seconds. Using newly developed systems, exterior parts with good inherent stiffness can be produced with a wall thickness of only 2 mm and a mold release time of 30 seconds (thin-wall technology).
