JAKARTA, INDONESIA: Polypropylene impact copolymer resins which are produced by PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk, Indonesia's largest integrated petrochemical company, meets the specifications defined by PT Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN) to be used as raw material for the manufacturing of car components for Toyota Vios and Yaris.

This success is a major breakthrough for Indonesia petrochemical industry in entering the automotive component sector that applies international standards which have been supplied by other countries.

In addition to a new marketing field that will continue to increase along with the development of the automotive industry, this breakthrough will support the efforts of the Republic of Indonesia government to strengthen the national industrial structure because this mutually beneficial cooperation between the company and TMMIN also improves the performance of compounding and molding industry in the country, namely PT Hexa Indonesia who adds additives and coloring in resins and PT Sugity who mould the resins into automotive components.

Besides Toyota Vios and Yaris, the company also plans to supply the models for Fortuner and Kijang Innova as well as other cars of LCGC Toyota. Currently, other brands which have used the company's polypropylene impact copolymer are LCGC Daihatsu and Honda cars and motorcycles.

Finally, the import substitution for these resins and car components can save the country's foreign exchange.
