Cooling & heating systems
By helping to keep car engines cool, the Technyl® Force is a major ally for the vehicle sector.
When fuel combustion generates power to drive your engine, it also generates heat that increases engine temperature, which is a critical factor affecting both engine efficiency and lifetime. Engines rely on sophisticated cooling systems surrounding its block with coolant to absorb excessive heat and keep temperature within normal operating range.Engineering prowess is required both in the composition and design of these critical parts, as well as the choice of materials that can effectively prevent parts from aging due to the presence of glycol, the main heat transfer medium used in coolant.
Close collaboration between car manufacturers and the chemical industry has made it possible to identify polyamide-based engineering plastics as an ideal material for cooling system parts. Engineering plastics offer high chemical resistance that help the cooling parts endure the coolant’s highly aggressive chemical environment. They also provide robust support for frequent variations in temperature and pressure. As a leading innovator in performance materials, Solvay Engineering Plastics has been supplying its polyamide-based products for mission-critical cooling system applications to the automotive industry for the past several decades.
