Terblend® N as solution for customized, integrally colored high-class loudspeaker grills
A German premium car manufacturer turned to INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, for customer-specific colored loudspeaker grills. Due to its high impact strength and good acoustic dampening, the Terblend N NM-21EF was identified as material of choice for the high-class loudspeaker grills.
“Customer demands in the automotive industry continue to increase constantly, especially with regards to interiors. Nowadays, more and more speakers with exclusive hi-fi and sound are incorporated in premium cars. All of these require resistance to climate change, very low inflammability and they have to be perfectly integrated to prevent any noise when driving fast,” said Pierre Juan, Vice President Global Automotive. “Our Terblend N is especially suitable for customers looking for a matte surface finish that does not require painting, and is therefore a cost-effective solution for automotive interiors in any color.”
Since there is a demand for a high aesthetic standard in terms of the grills’ surface, high flowability is required to guarantee a homogeneous color image. If flowability is low, the slightest irregularities and various gloss differences may be visible and this does not meet the high-class standard that is required. Additionally, due to the fact that this highly detailed and permeable surface cannot be painted, the Terblend N NM-21EF is particularly suitable for this interior application because of its matte surface, which already looks painted after processing.
