Seatback Panel Assembly

Our new seatback panel product replaces stamped steel panels, delivering the automotive industry’s first lightweight rear seatback panel composite solution. Leveraging our Stratas™ board polyurethane core composite technology, we were able to meet testing and safety requirements including shifting cargo, seatbelt load, and child seat anchorage testing.

Assembly Options

Carpet and other A-surface finish materials can be integrated onto the panel during production to reduce steps during factory assembly.

Our laminated composite panel can be thermoformed and waterjet-cut into shape.
