Applications

Charge Air Cooler Caps

Industry
Automotive
  • <ul> <li>Stanyl® PA46 allows for light weight solutions (40-50% lighter) and more cost effective solutions than metal</li> <li>Stanyl® PA46 allows for reliable solutions due to its better creep/fatigue resistance than PPS and PPA and in case of Stanyl® Diablo due to its excellent long term temperature resistance up to 230°C</li> <li>Akulon® and EcoPaXX® allow for light weight solutions (40-50% lighter) and more cost effective solutions than metal at the cold side.</li> <li>Xytron™ PPS allows for super high temperatrue resistance for long term.</li> </ul>

Hot Charged Air Ducts

Industry
Automotive
  • <ul> <li>Stanyl® PA46, Stanyl® Diablo PA46, Akulon® Diablo PA and Arnitel® HT TPC allow for light weight solutions as compared to metal or rubber or alternative plastics (Stanyl® is 10% lighter than PPS)</li> <li>Stanyl® PA46, Stanyl® Diablo PA46, Akulon® Diablo PA and Arnitel® HT TPC allow for cost effective solutions (Stanyl lowers system cost up to 20% versus metal)</li> <li>Stanyl® PA46, Stanyl® Diablo PA46, Akulon® Diablo PA and Arnitel® HT TPC allow for reliable solutions (Stanyl® Diablo is long term resistant up to 230 ˚C, Akulon® Diablo ca be used around 200 ˚C) and Arnitel® HT is ideal as single part solution for flexible hot charge ducts.</li> </ul>
