Safety is the number one consideration in the automotive industry. For more than 20 years, DSM has worked to develop a range of materials for automotive applications that perform more reliably and longer than metals and most plastics, while also delivering commercial, environmental and design benefits.
As the heart of the braking system, the brake booster valve body needs to operate faultlessly and reliably for the lifetime of the vehicle. Arnite® A helps customers make that happen. This thermoplastic has proven itself effective over 20 years without a single reported fault. Today, it is used in more than 300 million vehicles worldwide.
Ideal for the challenging temperature ranges of under-the-hood (UTB) applications, the material is resistant to grease, oil and other corrosive engine fluids, while performing well at both low and high temperatures.
New materials are needed to meet the increasing demands for systems like vacuum and airbrake tubes. Arnitel® delivers. This thermoplastic copolyester (TPC) is ideal for polyamide 12 (PA12) replacement in brake tubes, performing in the toughest conditions without the need for plasticizers. This makes for greener, faster, and more cost-effective production with fewer chemical additives.
