Replacing HDPE with Fuel Lock in your injection molded, blow molded or roto-molded fuel tanks equipment and hot plate or vibration welded processes components incurs no re-tooling costs. Once molded, Fuel Lock tanks only need to undergo quality testing once, since barrier strength performance is inherent and doesn’t vary between batches. The material’s rapid recrystallization rate from melt also reduces production cycle times.
Fuel Lock has a proven track record of success, with more than 25,000,000 fuel tanks already in the market. Yet, we know that replacing traditionally used materials can be risky. At DSM, our teams conduct extensive testing to ensure materials respond to every customer challenge and exceed performance requirements. We work closely with the EPA and CARB to proactively respond to changing emission limits, and partner with OEMs to ensure our evolving materials portfolio addresses your needs first and foremost.
