Italian car maker selects LyondellBasell's Hostacom PP resins

LyondellBasell Industries' Hostacom polypropylene resins are being used to produce a range of components for FIAT's new 500/Cinquecento retro-chic city car, awarded 2008's “European Car of the Year”.

To address the unique design, functionality and supply requirements of the 500, which features the aesthetics of the original model introduced in the 1950s, Italian car maker FIAT selected LyondellBasell's reinforced range of Hostacom PP resins for the door panels, interior trim, side claddings and under-hood waterbox of the 500 model.

“Nearly all of the polypropylene interior components of the 500 are produced using Hostacom resins, equivalent to approximately 15 kilograms,” said Fausto Cocola, LyondellBasell's key account manager for FIAT. “We were also able to meet FIAT's product sourcing needs by providing material consistency across regions.”

Commitment to Eastern Europe:
Components of the 500, which is produced in FIAT's Tichy, Poland plant, are specified in Italy and the resins are supplied to Eastern European-based auto manufacturing facilities to uniform specifications from LyondellBasell's Bayreuth, Germany, PP compounding plant.

“With compounding facilities in close proximity to the growing number of automotive manufacturing plants in Eastern Europe, we can provide OEMs with the material consistency they demand, regardless of where their regional operations are located,” said Alain Gourjault, Automotive Marketing Manager at LyondellBasell.
