Dacia unveils its secret weapon to fight off scratches

The best ideas are often the simplest.  To better deal with day-to-day scratches, the All New Dacia Sandero Stepway and the All New Dacia Duster feature mass-coloured skid plates.

Skid plates are the pieces of plastic located under the front and rear bumpers which protect the lower part of the vehicle from regular wear and tear.  The skid plates also serve to enhance the overall aesthetics of the bumpers. 

The traditional way of making skid plates is a two-step process.  First, a plastic material known as polypropylene is injected into a mould to give the part its final form.  Then, once injected, it can be painted or covered with a die stamped piece – chrome, for example – to enhance the final look.

Dacia has opted for another way by rethinking the way skid plates are crafted, opting for pieces made from mass-coloured plastics, which means that the plastic material used to make the part is already coloured.  Therefore, the colour never changes, unlike a regular layer of paint.

These mass-coloured skid plates are an example of Dacia’s award-winning intrinsic approach:  to find ways to create value for the customer, to design vehicles with manufacturing processes that are robust, cost-effective, intelligent and which incorporate circular economy and recycling.
