LANXESS released a new product polyamide 6 (PA6) for engine oil pan

it is also extremely strong and tough in low temperature environment

• rubber modification improves the resistance of grooves, so the performance of the interface will affect the overall performance of the composite

• good stiffness and strength

• meet the requirements of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) Shanghai - passenger cars are generally equipped with engine oil pan made of plastic. In April, 2015, the engine oil pan and the oil China automobile center took the lead in setting up a "joint research on in vehicle VOCs simulation" research group, including many automotive enterprises in the industry. Due to its inherent function, the engine oil pan is generally installed at the lowest point of the automobile oil circuit, that is, close to the ground. Durethan BKV 235 h2.0 XCP material specially developed by LANXESS for oil pan can provide good resistance to stone impact and chassis bottom contact. This protection cannot be provided by metal plates or other covering materials. Polyamide is a rubber modified plastic reinforced with 35% glass fiber. The abbreviation XCP means extremely high collision performance, which means that the material has extremely high toughness. "Our structural materials show excellent Charpy (i.e. simply supported beam impact test) notch impact resistance at low temperatures. Despite the use of rubber based toughness modifiers, the stiffness and strength of the materials remain at a high level," said Detlev joachimi, director of product development at Langham Durethan

oil pan with high mechanical strength

new materials meet the specification requirements of major automobile manufacturers for the low temperature resistance of engine oil pan plastic. The impact resistance of Charpy (i.e. simply supported beam impact test) groove is 18 kj/m2 (ISO EA) at -30 ° C. In contrast, Durethan BKV 35 h2.0, a standard polyamide 6 material containing 35% glass fiber, can reach 10 kJ/m2 at this temperature. Compared with standard polyamide 6, the elasticity of the new material when it is damaged. When the thickness of the insulation layer exceeds 10cm, the modulus and tensile stress are greatly reduced, which are 9500 MPa and 164 MPa respectively (dry plastic, ISO, -2). "As a result, we can design oil pans that meet stringent material stiffness and strength requirements while showing excellent impact resistance," joachimi said

high thermal deformation temperature

another advantage of this innovative material is its good fluid properties and high heat resistance. The thermal deformation temperature of the material at ISO, -2 (HDT a, 1.8 MPa) is 203 ° C, which is almost the same as that of Durethan BKV 35 h2.0. "As a result, the oil pan can maintain normal operation at a high continuous operating temperature," joachimi said

potential application of winter sports equipment

with its high tolerance to low temperature environment, polyamide also has good application prospects outside the automotive industry, such as winter sports. "Possible applications include Snowboard fixtures, components on sleds and tracked snowmobiles," joachimi said
