Akulon®

The high heat resistant plastic for air management systems

Akulon® Diablo is our high heat resistant polyamide 6/66, ideal for metal replacement in Under-the-Hood applications up to 220°C. We created Akulon Diablo as a material to help customers tackle the ever-challenging temperature range within smaller, hotter, turbo engines. As a result the latest grade Akulon Diablo HDT2500 delivers a 3,000 hour continuous use temperature of up to 220°C, with a significant improved  HDT value.
The high heat resistant plastic for air management systems

Akulon Diablo is ideal for metal-to-plastic replacement in components for air intake systems ranging from charge air cooler end caps, to air intake manifolds, to air intake ducts, turbo exhaust resonators and engine covers. With its reduced weight this material reduces both fuel consumption and resultant carbon emissions – good for people, planet and profit.

Chemical and gas resistant automotive plastic

Akulon Diablo can be blow molded or injection molded and is easy to process. In fact at DSM we’re more than a materials provider: We offer extensive application knowledge to support customers with CAE, design and design optimization so they can meet OEM requirements.

Akulon Diablo has outstanding resistance to chemicals and gases in EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) systems; plus excellent processing properties that create finished parts with high burst pressure weld-line strength for injection molded parts and a high quality surface finish.
