Injection moulding for A-Class Merc

Daimler-Benz and systems supplier WOCO chose DuPont glass-reinforced Zytel nylon for the pedal bracket plate in the Mercedes-Benz A-Class compact. This is the first production car in which the plate, usually made of die-cast aluminium, is injection moulded using an engineering polymer.

The 66 nylon with 35% glassfibre reinforcement had the dimensional stability, low warpage and the mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance that the part required.
