KIMflex® Hybrid Integral Systems
Perfect Driving Comfort
Kimpur (Kimteks Polyurethane) was established in 1983 and is playing his role as a pioneer among competitors in polyurethane sectors both in local and international market since the commencement of operation with system house investments made in 1999. Polyurethane integral skin foam is a class of polyurethanes are being used as a cover on metal or other inserts like steering wheel and dashboard of the cars, furniture armrest, bicycle seat and more. Regardless of the other polyurethane products like flexible and rigid foams, skin appearance is very important for the products in this class.
In R&D Center of Kimpur, different grades of polyurethane integral-skin foam systems have been developed based on the customer requirements and the expected properties. For example, we have environmental-friendly water-based to hybrid (water/auxiliary blowing agent) systems in our portfolio. These products have different density, color, hardness, chemical and mechanical properties. Physical
and mechanical properties of some of our systems have been shown in Table 1-3.
Our hybrid integral system has been developed for the production of dashboard. It is used in many production processes from private to heavy
duty cars, and products can be obtained in 70-80 ShA final hardness in 300-350 kg/m3 mold density. Mold can be opened in 5.0-15.0 minutes depending on the part sizes.
Final product is obtained in 40-50 ShA hardness in the mold density range of 250-350 kg/m3 through our hybrid integral system with low density, and molds can be opened in 5 minutes.
Below, comparison tables of Kimpur systems with the international competitors have been illustrated. Lower molded densities with acceptable hardnesses differentiate our systems from the competitors.
We as Kimpur R&D Team are developing new robust and customized integral skin systems according to the latest technologies and know-how to meet national and international requirements. We carry out our activities as a company followed in Turkish and world market thanks to innovative products and uncommon solutions.
