LYON, France—Solvay Performance Polyamides introduced new advanced Technyl-branded polymer solutions to address the growing need for personal protection and systems safety for the automotive industry.
A whole family of electro-friendly low-corroding materials has been developed to meet the needs of car manufacturers. The range comprises six Technyl and Technyl Star grades offering reliable purity based on dedicated formulation and clean compounding.
The firm said two of these grades use bio-based, eco-friendly Technyl eXten technology for applications needing high temperature combined with glycol resistance. The range will be commercially available in early 2019.
Solvay said automotive applications requiring these solutions include electrified cooling systems, sensors and connectors, as well as high-power EV chargers.
Solvay said Technyl One is ideal for fuel stack components because it offers more value to customers when compared to polyphtalamide compounds in terms of both in-use performance and processability. This material combines a near-zero ion migration potential with outstanding heat resistance, dimensional stability against hydrogen leakage, electrical insulation, high surface aspect and weldability.
