Ticona's Fortron 6162XF is a versatile mineral/glass-reinforced polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) with improved fuel resistance for applications used with aggressive fuels. Fuel-resistant Fortron PPS grade has decreased weight by more than 45% compared to the company's previous generation product and is suitable for applications requiring components that need high dimensional stability during storage with aggressive fuels. Applications include impellers, outlet covers, and fuel-injector components. Features include the ability to withstand long-term exposure to gasoline, diesel, bio-diesel, and aggressive fuels containing oxygenates, natural gas, and other fuels in alternative propulsion systems; continuous use temperature range from 320 to 464°F (160 to 240°C); short-term temperature resistance up to 518°F (270°C); broad chemical resistance, including automotive/aircraft fuels and fluids and strong acids and bases; dimensional stability; creep resistance; and a lack of moisture absorption.
