  • <ul> <li>Stanyl® PA46 allows for 40% lightweight (additional CO₂ reduction through improved moments of inertia) and 35% more cost effective solutions versus metal and it provides a significant reduction in rattling noise of gears in comparison with metal gears</li> <li>Stanyl® PA46 is more cost effective in comparison with PEEK</li> </ul>


At DSM, we have been developing balance gears in Stanyl® over the past 2 years in cooperation with different partners in the supply chain. Today, we have successfully accomplished 111 million cycles and the tests are still ongoing
