Stanyl®

Stanyl for better ignition coil connectors

When leading tier one supplier Delphi Automotive Systems was looking for an innovative material for a new ignition connector it chose Stanyl® polyamide 46. This unique thermoplastic outperforms traditional materials and can replace polyamide 66 - providing not only greater (fuel efficiency and cost reduction, but significant sustainability benefits.

Delphi chose Stanyl TW200F6 for use in the ignition connector which is soldered onto the ignition coil specified by an OEM for 4 and 6 cylinder engines. Why? Because compared to polyamide 66, Stanyl TW200F6 delivers better melt flow and mechanical properties – boosting surface quality and extending product life by allowing the material to flow around sensor elements and inserts for better sealing and encapsulation.

In fact this superior melt flow also reduces the potential damage to sensor elements and wires by reducing injection molding cycle times and tooling wear.

What’s more, Stanyl TW200F6 components provide superior resistance to transmission fluids and engine oils and increase stiffness for handling fluid pressures. 

Stanyl: The sustainable solution

Higher crystallinity and a faster rate of crystallization gives Stanyl a technical edge not just over polyamide 66 but also polyamide 6 and various polyesters; as well as PPAs, PPS and LCPs.

As well as boosting profit, the bright science behind Stanyl also protects the planet. Thanks to its reduced weight the material is helping reduce weight, fuel and therefore CO2 emissions. And because it can be molded at lower pressures and faster cycle times, Stanyl helps manufacturers achieve yet more energy savings during the molding process.
