ERJ staff report (DS)
Neuss, Germany - Dyneon said it has made a 2-K injection moulded automotive component using one of its fluoro-elastomers together with a grade of polyamide 4,6 from DSM.
The polyamide, sold under the Stanyl name, retains its stable mechanical properties even at temperatures up to 200Â°C. With 80 percent less density than steel, it also substantially reduces the weight of
The wide range of Dyneon Fluoroelastomers offers very high
chemical resistance against oils, fuels and numerous other
chemicals at temperatures up to 230Â°C. Stanyl polyamides and
Dyneon Fluoroelastomers are already used for many seals,
gaskets and components in automotive powertrains.
During continuous production, the cycle
time for the two-component process - as verified by the German
Institute for Rubber Technology - is reduced to a mere three
minutes per component. Including the vulcanisation process, the
components are ready for installation after just two hours.
