Ineos Styrolution reports its Luran S 778T SPF30 grade has been selected by SAIC for the new MG Linghang model, launched in October 2020. Headquartered in Shanghai, SAIC Motor is a one of the “Big Four” state-owned Chinese automotive design and manufacturing companies.

A combination of UV resistance, a lasting paint-free, high-gloss appearance, and dimensional stability reportedly make the grade an ideal polymer for front grill applications.

Luran S is Ineos Styrolution’s acrylonitrile styrene acrylate copolymer (ASA) brand. It is said to be a material of choice for unpainted exterior applications. Luran S offers outstanding properties for long-term use and for a high quality surface appearance. In particular, it offers weathering stability for outdoor applications even when unpainted. It is also suited for hot stamping technology that allows for aesthetic effects.

For SAIC, the enhanced UV resistance, weatherability, and lasting premium paint-free, high-gloss appearance with mold-in deep dark color of Luran S 778T SPF30 were the key criteria to selecting this material for the front grill application. Ineos Styrolution’s outstanding reputation, excellent customer service, and consistent product quality also contributed to the decision process, said SAIC.
