In compliance with the UNECE’s 118.02 regulation


The new 118.02 regulation of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) obliges the passenger transport vehicle manufacturers replace the material used in the body work building process, replacing standard ABS.

In compliance with all requirements demanded by the R118.02 regulation, which directly affects the combustion behaviour of materials on different vehicle categories, at Plasnor we have recently developed new vacuum thermoformed solutions for bus, minibus and coach interiors.

Those new developments are focused on different plastic parts located at the passenger, driver or staff areas: interior bodywork, trims, roofs, skirts, sides, bumpers or protections, dashboards…

At Plasnor we gather more than 30 years of experience in developing solutions for the vehicle bodywork sector. Continuously looking towards the market evolution by getting updated on new regulations, at Plasnor we wish to inform our clients about our mew capacity to produce plates and parts according to all R118.02 requirements.

At Plasnor we produce different-sized vacuum thermoformed pieces (up to 3 x 2 x 0.9 m) for the automotive sector. We adapt ourselves to suit all needs of our customers. Do not hesitate to contact us for further information. Giving advice is our pleasure!
