set new standards in high temperature flexible air duct applications.
The Arnitel HT advanced engineered TPCs expand the temperature capability of traditional TPC by offering up to 190°C peak and 175°C operating temperature capability—well beyond the capability of TPC materials that are traditionally positioned for air duct applications.
This material offers long-term heat aging performance and robust chemical resistance; therefore, high temperature ducts can be made from a single material solution. By using one material there is less potential for leakage because of less parts and connection areas.
A single material solution also makes it easier and faster to process, equating to a system cost advantage and weight reduction up to 50%. Arnitel HT also offers flexibility and mechanics even at low temperature.
Another ideal material solution
Stanyl Diablo OCD 2305 BM is another blow moldable solution that can handle continuous use temperatures up to 230°C. It offers a weight reduction up to 10% vs PPS and up to 30% vs aluminum, along with improved toughness, peak temperature capability and superior strength-at-temperature as compared to traditionally available PA66-based blow moldable materials.
After heat aging, it has robust elongation retention. Plus, it has a proven chemical resistance to EGR and blow by condensate. Stanyl PA46 retains mechanical properties at high temperatures, making it ideal for duct applications. It suffers modest loss in mechanical performance after 3,000 hours heat aging.
Both these material solutions offer weight reduction, proven performance and cost effectiveness. Also, grades with higher strength can be used to reduce wall thickness and therefore also save further weight in some applications.
