Transmission filter

The transmission filter must perform under high temperatures and come into contact with transmission fluid. The original designs used stamped steel that was crimped and/or welded. After further investigation, it was found that PA66 could offer the needed temperature performance and transmission fluid resistance. Years of production models have proven that the concept is successful.

Ascend’s Vydyne R533H and R530H are ideal for this application because of their superior temperature and chemical resistance. The high flow of the product allows the complex oil passages to be molded with ease. This part also provides a significant weight reduction over the stamped steel design.

The Ascend Automotive team utilizes mold flow analysis and years of automotive experience to create optimal parts for Ford,® General Motors,® Chrysler® and Toyota.®
