DSM Engineering Plastics supplies thermoplastics offering sustainable solutions for the automotive and electrical/electronic industries. Raw resin materials are sold in pellet form, and company offerings include an oil sump in an Akulon polyamide 6 material that decreases weight to reduce emissions, friction, and fuel consumption. Improved processes continue to develop the benefits of such material solutions, including better sustainability, economic efficiency, and a healthier carbon footprint. Using plastics instead of metal also improves end-of-vehicle-life solutions, according to DSM. Akulon is a range of PA6 and 66 resins for temperatures up to 185°C (365°F) that offer improved flow and aesthetics with the properties of normal polyamides. Akulon polyamide 6 metal-to-plastic conversion is suitable for automotive applications including intake manifold, engine, powertrain, airbag containers, trim, and electrical components.
