Cluster Panels / Dashboards
Instrument cluster panels and dashboards have long been fixtures in various forms of transportation. From aircraft and buses to fire trucks and limousines, dashboards keep us aware of the condition and performance of a particular piece of equipment necessary to the functionality of the vehicle. Additionally, dashboards protect the mechanics of the vehicle against moisture, impact, abrasion, excessive heat, and harmful UV rays. For several decades, plastics have been playing an increasingly vital role in the performance and design of these panels. Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS), polycarbonate alloys, polycarbonates, polyester, and polypropylene are the most common materials associated with these important applications.
Piedmont Plastics is uniquely suited to help customers find solutions for cluster panels and dashboard applications. Our films division can provide a variety of finishes, thicknesses and custom sizes in polycarbonate and polyester film that will suit a variety of printing processes.
