The hood release is a critical component because it must balance strength and wear. It must have the lubricity and wear resistance for consistent action. But it still demands a part with the strength and stiffness needed to engage the release mechanism.
Ascend’s Vydyne R533H is ideal for this application because of its balance of strength and stiffness with a good wear and lubricity. The ease of molding allows many design features to be added to the part to improve its functionality. The Ascend automotive team employed years of experience to create optimal parts for Ford,® General Motors® and Chrysler.®
