Chandra Asri says its impact copolymer polypropylene (PP) resin has been qualified for use in components for Toyota Vios and Yaris cars. Entering the automotive component sector is a major breakthrough for Indonesia’s petrochemical industry with other downstream suppliers also benefiting. PT Hexa Indonesia adds additives and coloring and PT Sugity molds the resins into automotive parts. Chandra Asri says it also plans to supply the Fortuner and Kijang Innova cars as well as other Toyota vehicles. Other brands which have used Chandra Asri’s PP resins are Daihatsu and Honda cars and motorcycles.
