Advancing Material Science for Appliance Gears

As manufacturers increasingly replace metal gears with plastic ones, they are realizing the benefits of shorter and more cost-effective production cycles, as well as producing end products that are more durable, and that have better noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics. DSM offers a full portfolio of material solutions and global application development support for high-performance appliance gears.

Optimize gears performance in small appliances

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.

Stanyl® TE200F6-FC

30% Glass Reinforced

Stanyl® is our high-performance polyamide 46 used for applications in automotive, E&E, gears and outdoor power equipments.

Stanyl® is a high performance polyamide that provides unmatched performance and value for demanding applications in which superior heat resistance, design stiffness, wear & friction and process flow qualities are required.

Because Stanyl retains its mechanical properties at high temperatures up to 220°C, this makes it ideal for extremely high-performance applications, where it outperforms PPA, PA6T, PA9T, and often PPS and LCP.

  • Heat Stabilized
  • Food Contact Quality

Stanyl® TW341

Stanyl® TW341 is a V2 UL-rated, non-reinforced high heat polyamide that offers excellent wear & friction properties in combination with outstanding creep resistance, strength, stiffness and fatigue resistance especially at high temperatures in combination with cycle-time advantages and excellent flow.
