MAGNUM™ goes China
Starting in 2017, Trinseo’s production plant in Zhangjiagang, China, will serve our Asia Pacific customers with high-quality ABS resins proudly made in China.
Two globally leading tiers collaborated to choose our ABS to supply Daimler with the internal door and door handle for their C-Class due to its outstanding low gloss properties optimized for unpainted, matte applications.
German supplier Giebeler is specialized in
automotive plastics technology and tool design with a focus on technical parts,
components and assemblies for instrument panels and interior door trims. They
acted as tier 2 for the construction of the interior door handle for the
Daimler C-class with SOP in 2013. The tier 1 in this project was Yanfeng
Automotive Interiors (YFAI), a globally leading supplier of door panels,
instrument panels and more. They were supplied with the door handle and built
the entire door module.
YFAI approached Trinseo in order to find a suitable low gloss material for the application of the door handle, that would be produced by Giebeler. MAGNUM™ 3325MT was the material of choice. It provides an outstanding low gloss of 2.0 and is therefore highly recommendable for a matte, unpainted interior application with maximum scratch resistance and an overall increased performance as a general purpose material solution.
To fully utilize the opportunity of producing an unpainted part, MAGNUM™ 3325MT can be combined with a Trinseo color masterbatch. This combination made the resin especially attractive for YFAI and Daimler as it helps to reduce cost and production time when compared with a painted solution.
MAGNUM™ 3325MT is qualified against Daimler specifications DPL 5404.80. Reach out to the team for this project and learn more about MAGNUM™ 3325MT, our coloring expertise, and our other products and capabilities:
