Hendrickson Bumper and Trim has unveiled a Hendrickson Aero Bright• (HAB) visor for Freightliner Business Class M2 medium-duty trucks.
This visor comes as part of an optional factory-installed chrome package on extended crew cab and day cab configurations. The visor will also be available in the aftermarket and will be sold exclusively through Freightliner.
The visor matches the luster of available chrome options on the Freightliner Business Class M2, while its HAB material is resistant against UV rays, weather, and corrosive materials.
HAB's design uses high impact acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic and weatherable paint films with thick-sheet thermoforming technology, to deliver a lightweight product with durable performance.
Hendrickson works with Soliant LLC of Lancaster SC to bring the trucking industry HAB mirror-finish bumper and trim components. The brilliant film in HAB meets the Global Plastics Environment Conference (GPEC) award criteria for “Sustainability and Recycling for a Greener Environment.”
The HAB film material is used in a variety of plastic substrates to provide a chrome finish comparable to chrome plating. It delivers excellent impact performance and full recyclability, while yielding low emissions during manufacturing.
Compared to chrome plating, the film used in HAB reduces the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), improves air quality, and requires less energy and water.
