Transmission parts

Automotive transmission parts require material solutions that offer both rigidity and fatigue resistance to meet the needs of applications ranging from pedals and brackets to gear lever housing.
 
High mechanical properties and stability
Specific Technyl® PA 6.6 and PA 6 grades reinforced with glass fiber have proven to be an excellent material choice for accelerator and clutch pedals. For safety-critical parts, such as brake pedals, Solvay Engineering Plastics leverages technical support provided by MMI Technyl® Design simulation to develop innovative materials, study behavior, and ensure flawless operation. MMI Technyl® Design is an advanced material modeling system offering advanced calculations to simulate in-use conditions realistically and predict the performance of injection-molded parts.
 
Applications such as electric throttle control pedals and adjustable pedal boxes have demonstrated their success in the market, benefiting from Technyl® expertise in design and material formulation.
 
Processing advantages
Further innovation has been achieved for applications such as gear lever housings, with Technyl® Star polyamide’s superior flowability providing notable performance and processing advantages.
