DSM to showcase sustainable automotive innovations in engineering plastics at SAE World Congress
Key innovations that will be on display include:
- Oil sumps in Akulon® Ultraflow polyamide 6 that are 60% lighter than the metal versions they replace and yet are still highly impact resistant. Akulon Ultraflow helps BBP cut weight of oil sumps for new Mercedes-Benz S Class engine and it is used by Steep for oil sumps of new Peugeot 508 engine.
- Air ducts made in Stanyl® Diablo OCD 2305 - the first high temperature polyamide suitable for processing by extrusion-blow molding.
- Vacuum Brake Tubing that is greener, faster and more cost-effective through the use of Arnitel® - a tough TPC ideal for PA12 replacement in brake tubes.
In addition to exhibiting automotive solutions, two industry experts from DSM will present at this event. Harry Siepel, Application Innovation Manager at DSM, will present “Turbo Air Duct Market and Materials.” The paper addresses the changing turbo market and new material technologies being used to reduce weight and costs for ducts and resonators.
Emile Homsi, Program Director, will present “A new engineered green PA410 material that provides unique solutions to a variety of thermal and mechanical challenges”. The paper provides a look at how polyamides offer the greatest potential for cost-effective production using feedstocks made from renewable resources.
Both presentations will be delivered at on Thursday, April 10 in room 115A.
