The engine cover on the Ford Fusion Hybrid utilizes a metallic-effect compound from PolyOne that mimics the luster of a painted polymer without the extra energy requirements and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that painting can produce. Injection molded by MPC Inc. (Walworth, WI), a Ford World Excellence-recognized supplier, the engine cover utilizes PolyOne's Maxxam FX Metal for a clean finish and reduced carbon footprint.
