D Pillar


This is an Industry-first use of a polycarbonate copolymer material on a D Pillar. Improved impact performance vs. PMMA was achieved and it allowed for rivet attachment to the vehicle without failure during environmental testing. The material demonstrated good UV, heat, and gloss performance. The material change also made it possible to achieve a high gloss piano black mold-in-color to OEM standards.
