Vadodara, India, February 6, 2018
Ineos Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announced that its high impact grade Absolac ABS has been selected by STUDDS, one of the world's largest manufacturers of helmets and motorcycle accessories headquartered in India, for its premium range of helmets.
In addition to key factors like safety and comfort, colour designs on motorcycle helmets have become an increasingly desired factor when it comes to helmet selection. When selecting the best material for this purpose, STUDDS decided on Ineos Styrolution's high impact grade Absolac ABS, which offers excellent impact strength compared to other polymers available in the market and provides good paintability without compromising on the dimensional stability.
"In an accident, helmets must have the ability to absorb a high level of impact, in order to prevent or minimise injuries to the head. We use Ineos Styrolution's high impact grade Absolac ABS for our premium range of our helmets due to its ability to withstand and absorb high impact. The good paintability and rigidity of this grade also allows us to further differentiate and customise our product offerings to the market," says Sidharth Khurana, Managing Director, STUDDS. "We have a long, excellent working relationship with Ineos Styrolution, enjoying their exemplary customer service and consistent product quality."
"We have been working closely with STUDDS for more than 20 years and we are very pleased to partner with such a strong local company in India to come up with the best solution and help them expand their footprint globally," comments Sanjay Parida, Head of Distribution India at INEOS Styrolution. "Apart from helmets, the high impact grade Absolac ABS can also be used for other applications, for instance front fenders and seat cowls in two-wheelers."
