Mercedes chooses scratch-resistant film for S Class interior components
28 February 2007
A hard-coated polycarbonate film from MacDermid Autotype has been selected by Daimler Chrysler for the new Mercedes S Class. The Autoflex XtraForm film is used in the manufacture of 44 different three dimensional interior components, including dashboard, lighting and window switches, producing a high quality aesthetic finish combined with excellent scratch resistance and optical properties. The components are manufactured via a technique called film insert moulding, which produces exceptionally tough, high quality, three-dimensional parts in large volumes using a combination of screen printing, cutting, pressure or vacuum forming, UV curing and injection moulding.
