The desire to own a car that will be noticeably different from the production model is simply ineradicable for many car owners. Thanks to the external tuning body kit and you have a pretty wide selection. You should decide on the material for its manufacture. It must satisfy the following requirements:
- Provide the necessary strength and rigidity of the structure.
- The material should have a low density, be light and affordable.
- Have good adhesion characteristics in relation to paints.
- Have the ability to restore their geometry after insignificant deformations.
1. ABS Body Kit
ABS is a form of impact-resistant plastic based on acrylonitrile with added styrene and/or butadiene. ABS plastic is quite popular and is used in various fields – in the manufacture of furniture, household appliances, and of course, automotive parts. Domestic manufacturers of car body kits use this material, perhaps more often than others.
2. Carbon Body Kit
Carbon is a modern composite material, a member of the extensive family of carbon fiber reinforced plastics. The technology of manufacturing carbon plastics is characterized by the use of carbon elements as a filler, which is glued together with resins. Carbon has the best weight-to-strength ratio, which has led to its widespread use in the design of racing cars, including Formula 1.
3. Polyurethane Body Kit
The chemical formula of polyurethane includes a chain of macromolecules with inserts of the -NH-CO-O- type, representing a group of urethanes, which gave the name to the material. Currently, two varieties of polyurethane: rubberized and foamed.
3.1 Rubberized Polyurethane Body Kit
3.2 Foamed Polyurethane Body Kit
4. Fiberglass Body Kit
Made of fiberglass by resin impregnation, it is considered one of the most demanded materials in external and internal car tuning.
