Car instrument dashboard molding is a process in which a plastic skeleton is created in a mold. The materials used in the skeleton are chosen according to the function and appearance of the part. A variety of plastics can be used to make a car instrument panel, including PVC, ABS, PC/ABS, PET, PPO, and polyurethane foam.
In modern vehicles, the instrument panel is a useful way to alert the driver to the status of the vehicle. There are several components in the panel, including gauges, lights, and indicators. The panel also alerts the driver to the condition of the car's engine, fuel reserves, and traction control. Several types of indicators are available, including speedometers, air pressure gauges, and air brake gauges. Many cars also feature a warning light for low tire pressure, a cigarette lighter, or a parking brake warning light.
Instrument panels are often designed to be aesthetically pleasing, with square, rectangular, or round instruments. During the 1970s, car manufacturers began using padded dashboards to increase safety. They were also common on luxury models. Modern vehicles are equipped with a variety of advanced features, including cruise control and emergency braking. These are especially beneficial in emergencies.
The first known use of a dashboard was in 1847, when it was placed over the driver's head on a horse-drawn sleigh. It was designed to protect the driver from debris and oil. Originally, it was applied over a wooden or leather barrier. Eventually, it became a convenient location for gauges.
Early on, the dashboard was a simple design consisting of a steering wheel, a handhold for ascending into the driver's seat, and a few simple controls. The dashboard later evolved to the modern version we know today. As the car industry matured, the dashboard became a central hub, providing a place to display a variety of instruments. However, the shape of the instruments could affect their visibility. Today, automakers are designing more stylish and ergonomic dashboards.
Plastics are one of the most commonly used material for automotive dashboards. A number of carmakers have made the use of plastic a standard for new vehicles.
Currently, the dashboards are mostly made of polyvinyl chloride, a common substance for shower curtains and water pipes. While this material is flexible, it can get very hot, even in the heat of summer. If vinyl dashboards become too hot, they can crack, causing them to become damaged. Fortunately, newer manufacturing techniques can prevent this from happening.
To avoid this, many manufacturers have developed treatments for vinyl dashboards. Using aggressive soaps and detergents can remove the waxy film that forms over the surface. Unfortunately, it's not possible to completely eliminate the film, which forms on the inside glass of the dashboard. Fortunately, scientists are working on a solution to this problem.
