Compo-SiL® Alternative Sustainable Material for Automotive Application

While sustainable materials are one of the major factors to be trending, automotive interiors and driving comfort have become equally important in consumers’ decisions to buy a new car. For instance, to find cruelty-free and eco-friendly alternatives to animal and faux leather, automotive experts, researchers, and manufacturers have kept researching for sustainable, lightweight, and durable materials for ages. Compo-SiL®is a sustainable material that can be easily applied to products of R2R and OMD processes. It has no adhesion or bonding issues with other materials. With Compo-SiL®technology, our decorative film is easy to bond with the other automotive interiors parts, including steering wheel, cockpit modules, automotive seats, etc.

Compo-SiL® Performance Benefits in Automotive

Hydrolysis, Humidity, and Weather Resistance

Compo-SiL® silicone based materials deliver high hydrolysis resistance and excellent weather resistance performance. These features ensure the effective functionality of our materials in high-humidity environments, providing exceptional durability and prolonging product lifespan.

Chemical Resistance, Biocompatible, Sterilizable and Easy to Clean

With silicone’s exceptional chemical resistance, Compo-SiL® ’s material becomes sterilizable. Car owners can effortlessly sterilize Compo-SiL® based surfaces by using alcohol or cleaning agents. Additionally, maintaining is simple – a quick wipe with a water-dampened sponge keeps them clean and well-maintained.


Automotive surfaces and interiors are highly contagious due to bacteria growing day by day, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Compo-SiL® based antimicrobial film have passed antiviral testing (ISO 21702:2019), anti-bacterial testing (ISO 22196:2011), and antifungal testing (ASTM G21), solving the problem of bacteria growth.

Flame Retardance, Halogen-free

Flame retardant material is widely applied to automotive parts and interiors to extend the time for escaping when a fire happens. Compo-SiL®silicone-based decorative film equips with halogen-free flame retardant properties, which minimizes the harm to the environment.

Silicone Transparent Brilliance: Light Transmission in Elegant Design

Thanks to silicone’s transparency, Compo-SiL® silicone-based decorative film enables light transmission, allowing for clear touch buttons on automotive instrument panels or dashboards when illuminated. Conversely, when the lights are off, the elegant decorative textures reveal their beautiful appearance, adding a touch of sophistication to the overall design.

Various Design with Compo-SiL®: Surfaces and Luxurious Touch

With Compo-SiL®’s tenability in hardness and elasticity of the raw materials, various surfaces and embossments for automotive interior surfaces can be designed.

Our decorative film offers a variety of surfaces, granting designers greater creative freedom and elevating the overall design appearance. Additionally, our materials provide a luxurious leather-like feel, ensuring users enjoy a tactile and satisfying touch experience.
