Solvay Engineering Plastics (Brussels, Belgium), a global specialist in polyamide-based engineering plastics, has developed a new Technyl range for the demanding environment of automotive electronic applications. With both unfilled, glass-fiber-reinforced and heat-stabilized engineering plastics, the Technyl grades will have a specified and controlled halogen content tailored to fit sensitive electrical and electronic automotive applications, such as sensors, relays, bobbins, chargers and control units. In all these cases, according to the company, customized Technyl grades for electronic applications are demonstrating first-rate retention of properties, including high chemical and hydrolysis resistance, even after long-term exposure to elevated temperatures, while at the same time enduring demanding mechanical loads. Pictured is the Technyl PA6.6 range in application in Continental’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensor. For more information, visit www.technyl.com.
