Pictured above, Stanyl PA46 enables gear manufacturers to mold 7 mm plastic gears, using 30% less material than 10 mm gears made from competing PPAs—without losing any strength or durability.
Helping customers design gears
DSM goes beyond industry standards to help customers understand how their gear designs will perform in real-life applications. Our state-of-the-art gear testers are able to measure how precise operational loads, friction, temperatures, and rotational speeds will impact the long-term performance of different spur, helical, or worm gear drives. Testing simulates various sliding and rolling combinations to better predict how the gear will respond to real-life conditions.
Our extensive portfolio of Stanyl grades are designed to accommodate the requirements of different applications. By helping gear manufacturers identify the optimal Stanyl grade for their needs, we’re able to reduce the need for part re-testing and re-molding after production has started.
As the demand for plastic gears continues to grow, gear manufacturers need to meet the compact space requirements for small appliances, while ensuring parts don’t wear out prematurely. DSM’s Stanyl offers the strength, durability, and fatigue resistance plastic gear manufacturers need to deliver the life-long high performance end consumers expect.
