From Persico a new spray skin process

Ecological coating for the automotive industry

Technology - Thursday, 5 March 2015

Persico Automotive has developed EcoCover, a new spray skin process that achieves amazing results in a wide range of colours. It can even create faux stitching. During the EcoCover process, a release agent is first applied to the mould. Then, using in-mould coating, the paint is sprayed on, followed by a polyurethane.

The process allows for very lightweight leather-like skins with design freedom and extremely small positive radii. Thanks to the polyurethane, the pieces have a pleasant feel and do not become brittle at low temperatures. Additional benefits of the process are very long tool life material savings and lower energy usage. Persico Automotive has collaborated with Hennecke on testing the innovative EcoCover process, that will be introduced at JEC Europe 2015 (Paris, March 11-13).
