Aug 15,2023 | Bond
In May 2020, we received an inquiry from the Japan.
Hi, we are XXX, a company specialising in plastic plating, our products are automotive interior and exterior parts and automotive plastic plating products.
We have noticed that when we send out goods to our dealers, there are always some water stains on their car trim parts, which makes the car trim parts look old like second hand, we would like to introduce some desiccant to solve this problem, do you have any recommendation?

We note that this company is a specialized manufacturer of plastic plating from Japan, founded in the Showa period, which mainly provides high-quality plastic plating products.
Car electroplated parts can develop mold due to a combination of factors, even though the electroplating process itself doesn't inherently cause mold growth. The primary reasons for mold growth on electroplated parts are related to the environment, surface characteristics, and maintenance practices.
Mold thrives in damp environments. If the electroplated parts are stored or used in areas with high humidity levels or poor ventilation, moisture can accumulate on their surfaces. This creates an ideal breeding ground for mold spores to grow and proliferate, and eventually, it will be covered by mold as the below picture shows.
Japan experiences a rainy season, known as "tsuyu" or "baiu," which typically occurs from early June to mid-July. During this period, warm and moist air from the Pacific Ocean interacts with the cooler air over Japan, leading to a prolonged period of rainfall. The rainy season affects most of the country, with the southern and central regions experiencing heavier rainfall than the northern areas.
The hot and humid weather in summer in Japan provides a very favorable environment for the growth of mold, so moisture control during storage and transportation is particularly important, and we provided our double-layer super-dry desiccant for this customer, which is 25g, size is 105*125mm.
They also have other different shapes of car accessories, they are also satisfied with our desiccant.
We built a lasting satisfying collaboration from this solution.
