The article presents information on engineered polyolefin from Solvay Engineered Polymers Corp. Sequel 1440 engineered polyolefin has been injection molded into the front and rear bumper fascias of the 1998 Dodge Intrepid. The new fascia assemblies are said to be more than six pounds lighter than previous ones. The rear fascia is much larger on the new model, yet it is much lighter and uses much less material. With the material's high flex modulus, stiffness requirements are said to be met at the thinner wall stock. Sequel is delivered in a weatherable, colormatched black. The color-match is achieved without the addition of pigment to the formulation.
