Hybrid cars, which incorporate an internal combustion engine (ICE) alongside a battery, continue to play an important role in cutting global carbon emissions. OEMs look to optimize the sustainability of hybrid vehicles by fitting them with compact turbocharged engines that are designed to balance performance and fuel economy. To lightweight engines and improve vehicle sustainability, manufacturers have replaced metal and rubber materials for these parts with polyamide 66 (PA66). Yet, this polyamide provides limited thermal resistance and can create supply chain risks.
High performance, high heat resistant automotive plastics enable lighter and smaller components – and are proven to perform at the fiercest temperatures for applications ranging from air ducts and resonators to end caps, air intake manifolds and engine covers.
During this webinar, Russell Bloomfield will keep you up to date on automotive materials solutions for producing high-strength and optimized air intake systems.
