XIAMETER brand silicones are playing a key role in automotive applications. New cars are being used across the globe as a result of economy improvement and growth in middle-class populations.
This keeps formulators of auto appearance products busy who maintain the aesthetics of the vehicles. Since huge investment is made in a new car, preservation of its look and feel is essential.
XIAMETER brand silicones provide various features to the vehicle’s interior and exterior, including water repellency, shine and others for longer maintenance of aesthetics.
XIAMETER materials are used in a wide range of prototype formulations, including dry washer, vinyl protectant, tire and multi-surface medium-shine dressing and wipe and spray car polish.
The formulation requirements differ based on climatic conditions to resist dryness, humidity, snow, rain and sun as well as dirt and dust present in unpaved road paths. Vehicle appearance product formulators now have cost-effective standard emulsions, which prevent the need for complex customization.
