When integrating the CAC into the AIM, the length of pipe previously needed to reach the air-to-air cooler in the front of the car is decreased, which increases engine responsiveness. Thanks to this development, automobile manufacturers can meet India’s emission standards while producing higher performing engines.
DSM offers materials for air intake manifolds that have either an integrated liquid-cooled CAC or an air-to-air CAC. The portfolio of thermoplastic products includes Akulon polyamide 6, Akulon Diablo polyamide 66, and Stanyl and Stanyl Diablo polyamide 46.
Diablo technology, invented and patented by DSM, is engineered specifically for elevated continuous-use temperatures of 180-230°C. The new Stanyl Diablo HDT2700 has an improved HDT. The melting point in combination with the Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) gives a good impression of the peak temperature resistance under loads.
Stanyl Diablo HDT2700 and OCD2100 exhibit excellent mechanical strength to provide best-in-class weld strength and ensure part integrity under pressure pulsation loads. It maintains high stiffness even when exposed to continuous-use temperatures up to 230°C and tested up to 3,000 hours.
The new Akulon Diablo HDT2500 withstands a 220°C continuous-use temperature and has HDT of 245°C. When looking at long-term heat aging, the grade has a stable performance up to 220°C tested up to 3,000 hours. Akulon Diablo fills the gap between Akulon PA6 and Stanyl Diablo by combining long-term heat aging performance and mechanical properties at 180-200°C.
