What is car body kit made from?

In the market, there are 4 different types of material used in body kit, they are Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polyurethane (PU), Polypropylene (PP + PE) and Fiber. All of our body kits are made of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). At Hamel Window Films, we only import body kits that are similar to the original parts, good in quality, affordable in price and mainly made from ABS.

ABS is usually used for mass produced parts only and its fitment is as perfect as PU. It’s light in weight, hence it doesn’t add unnecessary weight to your vehicle. The finishing surface looks better than fiber glass. However, not every factory can handle ABS as well as Hamel Window Films. During the process, other plastic material is added into ABS to produce the best quality of ABS, or else the product might deform and break easily.
