Applications of PA6, PA66, PBT in the Automotive Industry

PA6, PA66 and PBT find a wide range of applications in the automotive industry.

Molding Components

Molding components based on PA6 and PA66 are great for components that need high finish quality. We also produce compounds based on PA6/66 for a number of chassis applications, including engine mounts. High mechanical strength renders molding components made out of PA6 indispensable for center consoles and mechanical components.

Versatile PA6/66

Polyamides are great for under the hood parts. Lower warp, high heat, and good surface make PA6 ideal for wheel covers, seat adjuster levers, and roof racks. High stiffness is an asset for power steering reservoirs. Engineering plastics PA6 and PA66 are used for various engine and transmission parts. Due to higher temperatures and more aggressive chemical environments under-the-hood, such plastics are the best lightweight metal alternative. Glass reinforced PA66 can be used for engine cooling applications such as radiators and tanks.

PBT & PBT Alloys

PBT has very good dimensional stability at high temperatures and hence, is an excellent choice for headlamp structural housings and headlamp and rear lamp bezels and fog lamp brackets. Our PBT Alloys are used in body exterior, brake and fuel line clips, cable liners, and power distribution boxes.

Higher impact resistance, very good electrical properties, and long term heat aging performance make PA6 and PA66 great candidates for:

  • Power Steering Reservoir
  • Roof Rack
  • Seat Adjuster Levers
  • Seat Belt Components
  • Seat Pan
  • Electrical connectors
  • Engine Cover
  • Fuel Filter Housing
  • Fan Blades
  • Light Reflector
  • Wheel covers
  • Wiper covers
  • Plug connectors
  • Power Relays
  • Ignition system components
