MAGNUM™ goes China
Starting November 21, 2017 Trinseo’s production plant in Zhangjiagang, China, serves our Asia Pacific customers with high-quality ABS resins proudly made in China.
Samvardhana Motherson Peguform (SMP) is the major tier of Audi, and a long-term business partner of Trinseo. They chose MAGNUM™ ABS resins for the door module of the Audi A4, which has a volume of 220,000 units per anno for more than six years. The SOP of the car was in Q3/2015 and it is built in Europe and China.
Since the client required a material that is reliable in a high performance area to
enhance the upper and lower armrest
which is subject to side impact as per
Euro NCAP standard, Trinseo recommended
Our injection molding grades deliver optimal high heat and impact resistance and are especially suitable for interior applications due to low emissions (VOC) and odor. MAGNUM™ 3616 is approved against OEM specification TL 527 A,B.
SMP chose MAGNUM™ 3616 based on positive experience with both the performance and quality of the materials and also our technical on-site support. The tier appreciates the processability of MAGNUM™ 3616 in the injection molding machines and its behavior while testing under hard specification conditions.
Other reasons for their choice were the quality of our MAGNUM™ grades after assembling various foil and leather applications as well as the cost-efficiency our materials provide for SMP and Audi. Therefore, MAGNUM™ ABS is not only used in the 2015 Audi A4, but in all platforms of the OEM.
