Solvay says that it has expanded its thermal management materials range with the introduction of Ryton R-4-300 polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and the Amodel A-89XX series of polyphthalamide (PPA) polymers.
Ryton R-4-300 polymer reportedly offers improved performance in tensile strength and elongation, as well as improved weld-line strength. This new material is suitable for thermal management modules and parts where complex geometries require robust mechanical properties.
The Amodel A-89XX series of glass fiber-reinforced PPA grades ranges from 30 to 50% glass-filled loading and offers improved dimensional stability, lower moisture uptake and improved chemical resistance. It is suitable for applications such as thermostat housings, multi-coolant valves, water inlets/outlets and cross overs, and other under-the-hood components.
