- Rehau selects Luran SC to optimize bumper brackets in automobiles
- Material features high impact resistance and long-term heat stability
Polymer specialist REHAU has selected Luran SC, a styrenic polymer blend of ASA PC from Styrolution, to enhance the performance and functionality of automotive bumper brackets. The bumper bracket will be implemented as the standard material for several top automotive manufacturers.
Material features high impact resistance and long-term heat stability
Styrolution’s styrenic polymer blend of ASA PC is commonly used for bumper brackets in the automotive industry. In addition to toughness and impact resistance which improve safety, this particular Luran SC grade also offers UV and long-term heat stability. These characteristics are critical as the bumper bracket is used to secure the TPO fascia to the car body, requiring resistance to temperature, heat and moisture. Additionally, the UV resistance helps protect against UV light that may pass through the slit line between the car body and fascia, working to improve a car’s resistance to aging and the elements.
