High Performance Plastics for ECUs

When it comes to a vehicle’s braking system…failure is not an option. Electronic Control Units (ECU) activate and control the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) along with other critical systems. This means they must have the toughness to withstand high heat and humidity, salt spray, thermal shock, and vibration. And that’s why manufacturers are turning to Stanyl polyamide 46…

Stanyl is increasingly specified for this application thanks to its superior strength and good flow properties that enable the mass production of components with thinner walls resulting in lighter parts – a critical need as the electrical content of the car increases.

The Stanyl portfolio includes grades that allow for easy laser weldability – qualities well suited for many electrical applications, including the components used in charging stations for e-vehicles.
