Surfalex and Securalex products for outer and inner closure parts
Aluminium is a preferred choice to make vehicles lighter and more efficient, and provides numerous additional benefits to enhance vehicle design, durability and safety. For the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Constellium provides its Surfalex solution for the outer closures to deliver exceptional surface quality for sharp designs as well as to maximize corrosion resistance. For the inner closure parts, Constellium Securalex responds to the most demanding pedestrian safety requirements.
