Stanyl hot charge air duct for the 2020 Ram 1500 3.0L EcoDiesel truck.
“As vehicle electrification continues its gradual growth, automakers are continuing to seek efficiencies from the internal combustion engine,” said Jud Gibson, vice president for Commercial Americas, DSM Engineering Materials. “This is why our material scientists have developed a diverse portfolio of material solutions designed to reduce weight and improve performance for both traditional and electric powertrains.”
DSM developed Stanyl Diablo in order to help automakers meet and exceed increasingly stringent global emissions regulations. This has led to a trend in smaller vehicles with downsized engines. Creating these smaller engines requires new part designs. However, air ducts, either in metal or injection molded in plastic, do not offer the design flexibility needed to fit complex under-the-hood geometries. This requires the next generation of materials for hot charge air ducts created using blow molding techniques.
DSM’s complete portfolio of blow-moldable material solutions for air management now includes:
- Stanyl Diablo PA46-GF25 – Extreme peak and continuous temperature performance capability that meets even stringent turbo charged diesel requirements
- Akulon® Diablo PA66-GF25/GF20 – A state-of-the-art heat stabilized offering that delivers best-in-class specific strength and property retention performance at both extreme as well as moderate temperature conditions
- Akulon® PA6-I-GF15 – Robust processability and performance/cost balance to meet the requirements of positive pressure cold charge and some hot charge air duct applications.
- Arnitel® HT TPC-ES – Delivers extreme flexibility for rubber replacement. Recognized as runner-up for Enabling Technology Innovation during the 2019 Altair Enlighten Awards.
