[Background]

Approximately 3.5 million cars are scrapped each year in Japan, though following the enactment of the Automobile Recycling Lawin 2002, more than 95% of end-of-life vehicles are now recycled. To date, Automobile shredder residue (ASR), such as plastic waste left after dismantling and shredding have been thermally recycled via incineration.

PP is used in large quantities as automobile parts and is suitable for recycling. Further growth is expected in the future, but when used as a base for decorative films challenges have included weak ink adhesion, and the difficulty of maintaining the balance between the high quality design, physical properties and moldability.

[Features]

  • By providing decorative films for automobile interiors based on PP, we will contribute to automobile recycling.
  • PP emits lower GHG during raw material manufacturing than the currently commonly used ABS. As a result, it can be expected to lead to a reduction in GHG emissions for vehicle as a whole.
  • By applying and developing DNP's converting or material processing technology, we have achieved an excellent design quality, physical properties, and moldability for PP-based automotive decorative films.

[Going Forward]

DNP will provide environmentally friendly decorative films that contribute to recycling, mainly to the domestic and overseas automotive industries aiming for cumulative sales of 10 billion yen by fiscal 2030.

As a further environmentally friendly product, DNP has also developed an exterior film that does not require a painting process.

DNP is collaborating with DNP Europe GmbH, DNP America LLC, and DNP Living Space & Mobility (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. to expand its business worldwide, and plans to further accelerate its expansion in the future.
