Decorative front grill made of Luran® S 778T
Luran S 778T offers UV and heat resistance, colour fastness and impact strength. The material was selected to give the SEAT Tarraco a face – at reduced number of processing steps and reduced CO2 emissions.
SEAT, a top automobile manufacturer, was looking for a pre-coloured material to be used in its front grills with a metallic paint effect. Also, the material had to be used with the hot stamping technology. The material of choice needed to reduce CO2 emissions, solvent usage, energy consumption and processing steps.
INEOS Styrolution’s ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) grade Luran S 778T meets all these requirements. It is a material of choice for automotive applications like rear view mirrors and front grills. Luran S 778T combines high heat resistance, impact strength, decorative film adhesion and excellent UV performance. Due to its metallic pre-colouring, the expensive painting step is not required, thereby reducing emissions, energy use as well as processing steps.
