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.
BMW was looking for a material solution meeting the requirements for bumper brackets and fixing rails produced by Samvardhana Motherson Peguform (SMP) for a wide range of models. Our long-term cooperation and a reliable material with strong physical properties made a winning team for BMW and SMP.
Both of the applications are connection elements to assemble the outer bumper panels to the vehicle body. The parts are safety relevant components and have to meet strong physical requirements like high heat resistance in combination with best mechanical properties such as high strength.
The German OEM trusted in MAGNUM™ 3416 SC for the bumper brackets and fixing rails of the European versions of the 4 Series Gran Coupé, the 5 Series Sedan and Wagon as well as the 7 Series. Worldwide approved against the specifications of all major OEMs including the BMW GS 93016 (Color: Natural), SMP is using MAGNUM™ 3416 for the BMW applications not only due to its optimum mechanical and physical properties but also as a result of Trinseo’s reliable, consistent supply performance proven in long-term cooperation.
