Fuel for thought: Heat resistant plastics for fuel vapor systems
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.
