Heat and dimensional stability for Daimler C-Class B-pillar

MAGNUM™ 3325MT for C-Class B-pillar header Daimler

Stability and stiffness even at low temperatures 

IAC Group is a global tier 1 supplier for automotive interior technology with more than 160 years of business experience. Their European division in Plattling, Germany, was in charge of producing the upper B-pillar for the Daimler C-Class W205.

Daimler has chosen styrenics for interior automotive applications. Hence, IAC specifically asked for our MAGNUM™ ABS family. Most important for the OEM was that the material features dimensional stability and stiffness even at low temperatures. MAGNUM™ 3325MT met all these required properties.
