Types of car interiors

The interior of your car is all the parts of your vehicle that are more decorative than functional. Its main purpose is to make the auto interior trim a comfortable and warm environment. Examples of trim pieces may include leather steering wheels, door linings, roof lining trim, seat trim, or sun visor mirrors.

The common denominator between all these types of trim is that they have an aesthetic motivation. They do have practical uses, such as insulating your car to absorb heat. For example to prevent hands from being burned by the sun on the wheels or to prevent the roof from being damaged by water. However, most people see them as a more decorative aspect of your car, making the interior gorgeous and modern.

From there, the most suitable material for the part will be collected and shaped into the appropriate shape. From secondary injection molding to variable temperature molding, there are many different ways to mold small parts inextricably together. Once completed, in-mold decoration will be applied and the part will then be allowed to cool.


The decorated parts may be fitted before being sent to the distributor, but the other parts are sold as aftermarket products. Therefore, the process can be completed by simply installing them on the vehicle.
