Sunroof application recognized with SPE Automotive Award for innovation

The Society of Plastics Engineers' Central Europe Automotive Division has recognized the groundbreaking work done by resin supplier Polyscope in the development of sunroof frames for medium- and low-volume vehicle platforms. At a presentation of the 15th SPE Central Europe Automotive Awards held in Düsseldorf prior to the K Show, third prize in the Body Exterior section went to a frame for the Citroën DS3 Cabrio injection molded in a Xiran glass-reinforced blend of styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) and ABS developed by Polyscope.

Sunroof frames molded from engineering plastics are successfully being used all over the world at major OEMs. Recent advancement in system design and materials innovation led to Polyscope's development of a solution for the Citroën DS3 Cabrio sunroof system based on the technical capabilities and cost benefits of SMA/ABS-GF, while at the same time adding even greater functionality and value-added features.
