Material Solutions for Vehicle Lighting Systems

From the soothing glow coming from the radio to the signaling blink coming from the taillight, a vehicle’s lighting system is critical to its look, feel, and safety. Create interior and exterior lighting with attention-getting color and clarity by choosing the right materials. Our technologies for lighting systems control heat, allow for maximum output, and withstand harsh conditions inside and outside the car.


  • LED light output is affected by temperature - replace metal heat sinks with Therma-Tech™ materials to keep your lights cooler and running longer
  • Liquid and solid masterbatch colorants differentiate exterior lights—often without adding enormous cost
  • Lighting systems that incorporate materials from Avient’s portfolio of long- and continuous-fiber composites are more likely to maintain the integrity of their design
