Röchling Automotive has chosen Technyl polyamide from Rhodia Engineering Plastics, a member of the Solvay group, for the manufacturing of turbocharger air ducts which have to resist temperatures of up to 210 °C.
Since 2007, teams from Rhodia Engineering Plastics and Röchling Automotive have been working together to develop new solutions to meet the increasingly demanding specifications of automobile OEMs.
With a full understanding of our needs and a close and efficient collaboration, Rhodia was able to develop a high performance material that meets all the stringent technical requirements for air duct system parts, which also allows us to apply our patented and exclusive JectBonding processing and joining technology.—Fabrizio Chini, Advanced Project Manager at Röchling Automotive
The new polyamide 6.6 blow-molding material—Technyl B2(2)—is the established grade in Rhodia’s Technyl range of products for turbo systems and has been used by Röchling Automotive for over a year.
Rhodia Engineering Plastics is developing next-generation Technyl blow-molding grades to meet even higher under-the-hood operating temperatures.
JectBonding combines blow moulding, injection moulding and joining in one continuous manufacturing process.
