Hot and cold charge air ducts
For hot and cold charge air ducts we offer a range of thermoplastics that deal with the full spectrum of temperatures. We also offer materials for different fabrication techniques - either injection molded two-shell welding or blow molding, depending on your needs. In either case the end result is a very fast and efficient process that provides excellent burst pressure strength.
Hot charge air ducts guide the air from the turbo towards the charge air cooler (intercooler) with pressures and temperatures reaching as high as four bar (absolute) and 230°C. When faced with the very hottest temperatures our Stanyl® polyamide 46, Stanyl Diablo and Akulon Diablo thermoplastics offer the ideal solution thanks to their ability to operate at up to 250°C.
Cold charge air ducts, on the other hand, guide the air from the charge air cooler towards the air intake manifold. These ducts are put under high pressure at temperatures up 150°C. This makes thermoplastics, - and specifically our Arnitel® Copolyester (TPC) - an ideal solution. The material is ideal for blow molding and provides excellent stiffness and temperature stability combined with easy processing.
For these components we offer not only Arnitel TPC but also Akulon® polyamide 6 – a very tough, durable plastic that can be used for both blow molding and injection molding.
