Fuel for thought: Heat resistant plastics for fuel vapor systems

If you need heat and liquid resistant materials for the fuel vapor separator then our EcoPaXX™ polyamide 410 is the ideal solution. It offers long-term heat aging performance at elevated temperatures and delivers outstanding impact and fatigue performance – all while being 70% bio-based.

Leading systems supplier Dytech-Dynamic Fluid Technologies (DDFT) specified this unique automotive plastic for customers’ vehicles after the material posted exceptional scores In the SHED (Sealed Housing for Evaporative Determination) test.

EcoPaXX also has a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating at 0.7 mm with a maximum continuous use temperature of 175°C – providing true high peak temperature performance for fuel vapor separators.

Bio-based plastics for fuel vapor systems

High performance is only half the EcoPaXX story. With increasing pressure on the industry to meet consumer (and legislative demand) for greener vehicles, this bio-based plastic is the gold standard in sustainable automotive materials.

Made primarily from tropical castor beans that don’t compete with the food chain, EcoPaXX is certified 100% carbon neutral from cradle to gate – which makes it ideal for the manufacture of a more sustainable vapor fuel system separators.

For Dytech and its high-octane customers Maserati and Ferrari, the future isn’t just bright. It’s green.
