Higher safety levels for Jaguar’s doors

Jaguar used Dow Automotive’s newly developed Spectrim LD reinforced reaction injection moulded polyurethane system for the production of the interior door panel on the new S-Type, in order to meet high performance standards for side impact protection whilst achieving stringent weight and cost saving targets.

The aesthetic possibilities of the material ensured the doors looked good, and by combining moulded foam blocks with reinforcing ribs, the polyurethane’s potential was fulfilled.
