This specification details the requirements of a moldable paint film applied to thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) carrier films (called thicksheets and thinsheets). These laminates are then processed into exterior parts via a one, or two step process. The paint film/thicksheet laminate is thermoformed into a finished exterior part. The paint film/thinsheet is first thermoformed into an insert. The insert is then placed into the injection mold, and plastic is injection molded behind it to form a finished part.
Typical applications include appliques, rocker moldings, fascias, body side moldings, lower fascia extensions, lower radiator air deflectors, and other miscellaneous exterior parts.
