A new range of Polyamide for fuel contact applications20 Apr 2010 • by Natalie Aster
A new product family of Polyamide 6 and 6.6 based solutions for blow-moulding, developed specifically for fuel contact applications has been developed by Rhodia Polyamide. The Polyamide-based product range provides new solutions for fuel storage and transportation, offering high barrier performance and weight reduction of up to 30% without compromising on safety. Its benefits are designed to meet the individual needs of the targeted market segments, such as the automotive industry, or the industrial and consumer goods sectors, which are subject to continuous stringent evaporative standards.
Fuel’In by Technyl incorporates the already well-established Technyl C 536 XT & Technyl C 548B in addition to brand new products. These resins allow easy 2D & 3D blow-moulding processing into equipment set for HDPE (high density polyethylene) with minor device optimisation. Its products are already being used successfully on such applications as automotive fuel filler pipes and heavy motorcycle fuel tanks.
