Ascend Performance Materials, one of the world’s largest fully integrated producers of nylon 6,6 resin, will be showcasing its high-temperature and hydrolysis-resistant products for the automotive industry at two upcoming automotive tradeshows including ITB Advanced Thermal Management on April 27 and AutoEpcon on May 2, 2017.
Ascend’s portfolio of PA66 resins and compounds are ideal choices for OEMs looking for light-weighting solutions because of their high temperature- and hydrolysis-resistance properties. When combined with other lighter-weight materials used in engine systems, a car’s weight and fuel efficiency can greatly be improved while ensuring resistance to common problems such as protracted exposure to hot oil, hot air, road salt, coolants and other automotive chemicals.
Representatives from Ascend will be on hand to discuss PA66 automotive innovations:
Ryan Hensarling, PhD, and Shawn Osborn, PhD, from Ascend’s nylon technology team will present a paper about emerging trends within the automotive market at AutoEpcon. The primary focus will be demonstrating how Ascend’s new Vydyne J Series resins are ideal for the increasing demand of hybrid and electric vehicles. The Vydyne J Series resins are electrically-neutral, inhibit corrosion at the metal/plastic interface, and are optimized for high flow, allowing for thinner part thicknesses.
“We continue to invest in research and development to better serve our customers in the automobile industry,” said Phil Jeszke, global automotive segment leader. “The global auto industry is facing a number of regulatory and technological changes in the coming years, and we look forward to helping our customers stay ahead of the curve.”
The ITB Advanced Thermal Management conference will take place at The Baronette Renaissance Detroit-Novi Hotel in Novi, Michigan on April 27. AutoEpcon will take place May 2, at the Detroit Marriott Troy in Troy, Michigan.
