Non-carpet Floor Covering Materials
|Publication Date:||1 September 2017|
Material Description. This standard describes plastic materials that are suitable for non-carpeted floors, as well as for floor mat applications. Testing shall be performed on production intent parts.
• Type I: Polypropylene
• Type II: Thermoplastic olefin (TPO) film on substrate
• Type III: Polyurethane
• Type IV: Rubber
• Type V: Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) film on substrate
• Type VI: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) (only for emerging markets)
Symbols. The code defines the material construction and will be assigned by the responsible department.
Applicability. Suitable for non-carpet floor applications.
Remarks. For requirements for vehicles without solar absorbing glass, contact the appropriate Materials Engineer. All interior materials are developed to be used in vehicles with solar glass; therefore, performance may be compromised if used in non-solar glass vehicles.
