Stanyl for Outdoor Power Equipment

Our Stanyl® polyamide 46 is used for various applications in sports, leisure & consumer goods – particularly in the Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE) segment. Its excellent stiffness at elevated temperatures combined with extended fatigue endurance and outstanding wear resistance make the material perfect for harsh agricultural and construction environments.

Increasingly, OPE components need to perform at a high level - and at ever higher temperatures (in excess of 230°C). All of which makes Stanyl ideal for Under the Hood components in everything from harvesters and tractors to snowmobiles and even lawn mowers thanks to its ability to outlast metal and other traditional materials.

Stanyl provides the lowest friction of all polyamide-based materials when lubricated with engine oil. It also provides the best wear and fatigue performance: Up to seven times longer than PA66.

This makes the material ideally suited to applications like timing chain tensioners for example – as well as components needing excellent abrasion resistance for moving parts – like harvester forks.

In fact, from engine covers and mufflers to UTH applications, Stanyl an ideal replacement for PPA, PA6T, PA9T and often PPS and LCP.
