The engine cover demands a unique balance of properties. Most important, the part must maintain its appearance and resist warpage, and therefore the material used must be resistant to both under-the-hood chemicals and heat. The engine cover must also help reduce the noise created by the engine.
Ascend’s Vydyne R228 is extremely well suited for this application because it balances superior temperature and warp resistance with a pleasing surface appearance. R228 also helps neutralize engine noise.
The Ascend Automotive team uses years of automotive experience to create optimal parts for Ford,® as well as for Toyota® and Chrysler.®
Vydyne® R220 is a 40% mineral reinforced Nylon 66 resin formulated for improved impact strength. Also available in black as R228. It is an injection molding grade formulated to retain the inherent processing advantages of unreinforced Nylon 66 while enhancing rigidity, strength, and heat resistance. Vydyne® R220/R228 maintains the chemical resistance typical of nylon to a wide variety of chemicals, gasoline, oils, greases, and solvents.
