Commercial Vehicle Heavy Duty Truck
OMNOVA develops primer and appearance coatings that can be applied during the molding process of molded plastic and composite components for heavy truck applications. Our line of in-mold coatings for compression and injection molding function as substrate porosity fillers and sealers to provide a uniform surface. In-mold coatings offer an economical method for reducing the costs and time associated with applying primers and coatings as an additional step in the manufacturing process. They also can improve the environmental impact associated with multiple priming, painting and finishing steps.
We offer a broad portfolio of coated fabrics for durable, attractive and comfortable seating solutions. By working directly with automotive OEM and aftermarket seating fabricators, we have developed a number of upholstery constructions to meet stringent industry requirements and demands, including vacuum-formed upholstery and low to no VOC offerings. Our Coated Fabrics can also be used to fabricate door and instrument panels, visors, dashboards, arm rests and more.
We are a recognized global leader in the manufacture of latex for tire cord and MRG fabric dipping. Our Pliocord and GenTac vinyl pyridine (VP) latices provide excellent adhesion of synthetic fabric to rubber. These products are used in conjunction with resorcinol and formaldehyde, as well as other resins to promote adhesion to nylon, rayon, polyester, aramid and glass cords used in tires and mechanical goods. We also offer reinforcing resins, which impart attributes, such as flexibility, retention of plasticizer in PVC, modulus, soft hand, matte finish and resistance to oil, chemicals and extreme temperatures. OMNOVA's Wingstay antioxidants protect tire and rubber goods from thermal oxidation, which helps to extend the life cycle of our customers' products and reduces service life costs. Wingstay antioxidants deliver a range of direct and indirect performance attributes to end-use products, including protection from softening, hardening, brittleness and stickiness.
