Polyscope Polymers B.V. recently won the JEC Innovation Award in the Automotive Application category this year.

Polyscope’s XIRAN SGH30EB glass filled thermoplastic composite was specified by Webasto France and the Groupe Renault for the roller-blind guide rails on the panoramic sunroof modules installed, since 2016, in Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic MPV (multipurpose vehicle) models.

This is a significant automotive innovation for the industry, being the first time that a thermoplastic composite material has successfully replaced aluminum for this type of sunroof design in a mass produced passenger car.

The move from conventional anodized aluminum extruded profiles to thermoplastic composite Guide Rails provided Renault with customer design improvements: freeing up 13 mm headspace for passengers and increasing the angle of vision through the glass panel (called Daylight Opening).

The XIRAN SGH30EB composite guide rails simplified the construction and installation of the sunroof on the Scenic and Grand Scenic vehicle assembly lines. In total, the project delivered a significant system cost reduction for the installed, improved design, panoramic sunroofs.

“We are absolutely delighted and feel very honoured to have won this prestigious JEC Innovation Award. It was a challenging application development for the Polyscope team, but we were fortunate to be working with outstanding, highly technical, design and engineering people in Webasto France and Groupe Renault and the specialist partner companies involved in this project,” said Ferdi Faas, Business Unit Director, at Polyscope Polymers B.V.

This partnership project involved the Polyscope team working closely with automaker Groupe Renault, First Tier automotive roof systems market leading manufacturer Webasto SC, along with specialist toolmaker and molder AARK-Shapers.
