Painted and chrome-plated passenger cell parts
Volkswagen requirements specs TL226 and TL528
Volkswagen specifications TL226 and TL528 specify the validation requirements for painted or chrome-plated passenger-cell parts. The principal tests performed on your parts in the context of these specifications are material validations (Fogging, Odour, VOC, Formaldehyde, Combustibility), as well as a certain number of climatic and UV tests which differ slightly if your part is intended for a VW or Audi project. Completion of the validation process for your part may require a rubbing, abrasion and staining test. More rarely, a corrosion test is specified, especially if the part is chrome-plated.
