Connectors

High Performance Plastics for Connectors

The trend towards miniaturization is continuing apace – no more so than for connectors. Our thermoplastics are giving design engineers renewed flexibility in creating next-generation connectors with improved features that are able to perform reliably at the highest temperatures.

Quite simply, automotive connectors made with Stanyl® have shorter cycle times in production and are easier to process, especially when you use our high-flow grades. Stanyl delivers top performance where it’s needed most: In critical application areas for wire harness connectors used in turbo diesel injection engines; and in wire-side sealed connectors – both of which are constantly exposed to extremely high temperatures and chemicals.

In particular:

Connectors made with Stanyl TW341 and Stanyl TW363 offer heat resistance and film hinge capability after exposure to oil and diesel for 2,000hrs at 150°C Stanyl TW200F6 provides a ‘one material solution’ for all the positions of a high-temperature wire-side sealed connector and complies with USCAR testing protocol Connectors benefit from the high stiffness of Stanyl at high operating temperatures, and the toughness it delivers for snap fit. With high flow and a faster cycle time than PPS and PPA, Stanyl lowers costs and offers more design freedom
