Loadspace cover for Freelander

Combining pressure forming expertise with a unique combination of materials, Thompson Plastics Group has produced a loadspace cover for Land Rover’s Freelander. The cover is a three layer composite component. The core is a new thermoplastic composite sheet of chopped fibre glass reinforced polypropylene called Azdel. This has enough strength to eliminate the need for a metal frame, reducing cost and simplifying assembly. The top layer, a vinyl skin, gives an attractive soft touch finish to match the vehicle interior.
