Need was closed on
Jan 1

Yanfeng Automotive seeks methods to crosslink the surface of polypropylene copolymer, at a controlled depth, using electron beam technology.


Yanfeng Automotive would like to improve surface durability of polypropylene copolymers without requiring the use of conventional polymer coatings.  Instead, they seek to modify the surface of molded parts.


Key success Criteria
  • Ability to control depth and density of crosslinking.
  • Ability to process 3D surfaces and contours.
  • Process does not affect surface appearance and gloss.
  • Process is not capitally intensive.


Possible Approaches

Systems that operate at atmospheric pressure


Approaches not of Interest

Paint and coatings, approaches that require changes to polymer formulation
