For more than 10 years, one of our main activities is manufacturing and distribution of flat Dash Trim Kits and custom interior design parts. Dashboard Trim Kit is a good and easy method to get rid of stock interior monotony and to overcome similarity of cars inside single model range. With the help of Dashboard kit it's easy to change dull factory interior into comfortable and renewed environment, providing comfort and visual pleasure to driver and passengers.
Dash Kit is a set of pieces that should be applied over existing dashboard to give it new look without modifying or removing factory parts. All existing kits are divided in two main categories: Flat and Molded. They are available in different finish variations, from classic Japanese Cherry and Medium Burl Wood to modern and hi-tech Carbon Fiber and Brushed Aluminum. Large selection of materials allows customers to choose a kit which will correspond to particular auto style and, of course, personal taste.
focus our attention on differences between two types of
Flat Trim Kits
are called "flat" because they arrive as overlays.
Pieces are flexible and curve to the shape of the dash. Flat
kit is easy to produce, so the final price is the most
attractive. It’s very important that flat trim kits
production technology allows easy making of custom or
replacement pieces. Flat Dashboard Trim Kits have coated
surface. By type of coating they can be divided into two
sub-categories: Regular and Premium (Polyurethane). Since
these categories differentiate in production technology and
give different results during usage, regular and premium
flat dash kits have different prices as well. Here are few
highlights on what makes the difference between Regular and
Premium (Polyurethane) coatings.
- this type of kits has coating based on special
epoxy resin. Epoxy method is quite fast and financially
convenient. At the same time there are few unpleasant
moments. Epoxy resin is result of chemical reaction between
two substances mixed together. Resulting substance becomes
rigid enough and easy to handle in approximately 24 hours
and coated dash kit is ready to ship. While fresh and warm
(about 68-73F or 20-25C), epoxy resin is soft, flexible and
easy to work with, but after some time it starts to harden.
Chemical processes in the coating are going on, epoxy resin
becomes more and more solid and in approximately six month
it reaches its final hardness and transforms into solid
plastic-like material. Pieces look good when installed. But
with environment changes, curved pieces may develop cracks,
because epoxy resin, soft and flexible during installation,
became hard and tension on complicated parts of the piece
breaks solid coating apart causing it to crack and
delaminate. Strong hot and cold weather, as well as fast
temperature changes, noticeably contribute to cracking and
delamination process, especially on the folding parts of the
- also called Polyurethane coating. This is progressive
technology, a little more expensive, but providing much better results.
Polyurethane (Premium) coating allows to get rid of above mentioned
troubles. This type of coating forever remains as flexible as at the day
of production and never solidifies like epoxy resin. It doesn’t matter
how hot or cold is inside or outside of the car or how much temperature
drops or rises within the day. Coating anyway will remain flexible as at
the day it was applied to pieces and never cracks or delaminates.
Polyurethane coating is also few times better in protecting materials
against UV rays than regular (epoxy resin) and completely prevents light
materials, like Aluminum, Brushed Aluminum and Real Silver Carbon Fiber
from changing original tint and color (epoxy coated light material
starts changing tint to greenish in approximately 6-12 months). Despite
that premium polyurethane coating is slightly more expensive than epoxy
resin, it is excellent one-time investment which completely pays it off
while dash kit is in the car. There is no need to spend time and money
(shipping expenses) in case of cracks or delamination, wait for
replacement pieces and bother installing them. Premium coated installed
kit always looks good and like new.
Dash Kits are
made from hard plastic and are preformed at the factory to
fit the shape and contour of dashboard. In contrast to Flat
Dash Kits which usually cover only front surface of the dash
and cannot be curved in two dimensions at the same time,
Molded Dash Kit pieces could be made curved at any angles
and in all three dimensions. As well as Flat Kits, Molded
Dash Kits do not replace existing OEM parts. But unlike Flat
Kits, installed Molded Dash pieces give a 99% factory-like
produce FLAT Polyurethane coated trim kits only, but we also sell Molded kits
made by our business partners. As a manufacturer, we do our
best to keep the lowest and most reasonable prices on the
market. We pay special attention to quality and look of
product that we offer. Our professional staff carefully
engineers all kits to perfectly fit exact car model and
designer team works hard investigating new and current
models to permanently improve trim kits that we offer to
your consideration. Each dashboard kit is thoroughly
examined by Quality Control professionals on every
production stage. Pieces are made from highest quality
materials and are precisely cut on ultimate laser equipment.
Original 3M Backing Tape in combination with3M Adhesive
Promoter provides easy “Peel-n-Stick” installation
and ensures that dash trim kit will stick to dashboard as it
should, without peeling off and moving.
it's important to say that it doesn't really matter which
kit will be installed in the car - flat or molded, cheaper
or more expensive . Either way, Dashboard Kit will add a
touch of style and personality to any car, making its owner
enjoy renewed interior in the new way.
