Powertrain

The powertrain components transmit engine power and deliver it to the road. To remain competitive, automakers need to engineer powertrain systems that are increasingly economical to manufacture, while offering higher performance, better fuel efficiency, and a longer operating lifetime. 
 
These requirements have led to designs involving higher internal pressure and temperature, greater instantaneous force, and increased complexity in design and mechanical operation. 
 
In the past, most powertrain parts were made of metal. Manufacturing these same parts with engineering plastic materials has proven to be a real breakthrough for the automotive industry, as it reduces weight significantly without sacrificing performance. Technyl® products meet the critical requirements for powertrain applications with the necessary strength, heat, and chemical resistance. For example, Technyl® offers a complete range of polyamides for turbo system applications with operating temperatures above 200°C. With a 20-year track record as the market reference, Technyl® also features a range of hydrolysis-resistant grades for the most demanding applications in cooling systems.
 
In addition to its comprehensive line of Technyl® polyamides, Solvay Engineering Plastics provides OEMs and parts suppliers with advanced support options, including assistance with raw material selection, MMI Technyl® Design for CAE simulations, parts testing, and Sinterline Technyl powders for rapid prototyping.
