Versatile PVC can take the form of soft leather-like seating to attractive to scratch-resistant dashboards and panels. Not only that, high- density PVC sheets can keep the inside of the car comfortably quiet.
Artificial leathers are nearly omnipresent. In automobiles they can be found as seat upholstery, seat trims, panel shelves, sun visors, and more. Artificial leathers are produced in an array of aesthetically pleasing colors and designs, and are not as vulnerable to wear and tear.

High-specific-density PVC sheets are incredibly effective for sound insulation. To keep the inside of the car comfortably quiet, PVC sheets are used to dampen engine sounds and exterior noises.
Sound insulation sheets can be produced either by the extrusion or calendaring process. A thermoforming machine shapes the product.

Plasticized PVC has long been a preferred product for the manufacture of car dashboards and door panels, thanks to its attractive, leather-like look and feel, its ability to withstand high temperatures, and its formidable scratch-resistance.
A "low-fog" resin has been developed for the manufacture of these products. Car dashboards and door panels are manufactured by slush-molding, calendaring or coating (emulsion-type resins).
The automotive industry uses embossed sheet/films for dashboard and interior surface protection. To that end, Solvay’s ambient cure cross-linkable polyolefin materials will provide the required protection thanks to their high abrasion, chemical and scratch resistance, combined with their wide operating temperature range (-50°C up to 125°C).
