Webinar: Glycol resistant polyamides for automotive cooling circuits
Plastic components such as polyamides (PA) are often used in the cooling circuits of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles, due to their good thermo-mechanical behaviour and chemical resistance to cooling fluids such as glycol mixtures. However, as more people move to electric vehicles, there are new technical challenges for engineering plastics.
DOMO’s R&D innovation lead for Automotive Market, Louise-Anne Fillot, will be talking about how our innovative TECHNYL® products offer solutions for this specific mobility segment.
Our TECHNYL® brand, which offers innovative PA66 and PA6.10 based solutions meant for PPA replacement, retain the mechanical properties after coolant ageing at temperatures ranging from 80 to 140°C, for test durations comprising between 48h and 8000h.
At the talk, you will learn more about the correlation between mechanical measurement on specimens, part testing results, and material degradation assessed by Gel Permeation Chromatography (polyamide molecular weight, Mw).
Join us to see how this compares between different coolants, and the impact it has on coolant severity.
R&D Innovation Lead Automotive
Louise -Anne joined Rhodia in 2006, and worked 8 years as a researcher in the Polymer and Advanced Materials Lab (LPMA), a joint lab between Rhodia and the French Centre de Recherche National Scientifique (CNRS). Then in 2015, she integrated Engineering Plastics Business Unit of Solvay. She oversaw the development of new products for Automotive market and is identified as an expert scientist in the field of Thermal management (Heat & Coolant resistance) and Fuel barrier properties of Polyamide. In the new DOMO organization, Louise-Anne took the lead of the R&D Automotive team, and she is today in charge of the Innovation projects portfolio for Automotive market.
