Once again, Mazda has come up with a solution for one of drivers’ biggest pet peeves, scratches in the exterior paint. Even if you are able to avoid collisions and scrapes, it seems like scratches always find their way. Mazda’s new bio engineering plastic aims to make scratches and frequent polishing a worry of the past, as it is extremely scratch resistant as well as waterproof. Plus, it’s even better for the environment! Talk about a win/win scenario.
The non-toxic material meets all safety standards, can be molded into any shape and is therefore usable for any Mazda model, and it doesn’t even require painting. It can simply be created in a range of colors, avoiding harmful paint.
The paint used to color vehicles is actually surprisingly bad for the environment, with volatile organic compounds (VOC) being produced in the form of paint emissions. The Mazda bio engineering plastic will eliminate this hazard altogether.
Mazda is already using their bio-engineering plastic on parts of the new Roadster RF concept model, which will soon be released in Japan. No word yet on when the technology will be available here in the United States.
