Transmission cover

Transmission covers face high temperatures and constant contact with transmission oil. In this harsh environment, the transmission cover needs to seal reliably to prevent oil leakage and water and dirt intrusion, while also providing openings for a fluid level dipstick and the transmission electrical control harness.

Ascend’s Vydyne® PA66 is ideal for transmission cover applications because of its superior temperature and chemical resistance. High modulus ductile, glass-filled Vydyne R433H protects from road debris impact. Plus, Vydyne’s best-in-class flow allows you to design parts with thinner walls, thereby reducing material cost, cycle time and part weight. Our simulation experts use state-of-the art FEA and flow analysis to help you design a part right, the first time.
