Interior Trim

Brushed aluminum combines with soft plastic to create an elegant update for automotive trim.

 

Interest in authentic materials in recent years has lead to increased use of aluminum trim as an accent.  Aluminum can be formed into complex shapes and decorated in a wide range of finishes. The trim is made even more robust when aluminum in-mold is added. 

Use aluminum trim to add to the perceived value of your product. The look of the part can be changed completely by application of a new finish. This means product refreshes or new models can be accomodated with very little additional cost.
