New Technyl® Blue materials for electric vehicle cooling systems

  • Tailored injection molding grade and range for extrusion
  • High chemical resistance at elevated temperatures
  • Excellent dimensional stability

Lyon, France, Oct. 16, 2019 – Solvay’ Technyl® Blue range, the market reference for thermal management, has been enriched with new grades specifically designed for electric vehicle (EVs/HEVs). Based on PA6.6/PA6.10 polymer technology, these new materials address both injection molding for parts in cooling circuits and air-conditioning systems, which also benefit from our brand-new extrusion range.

Electrified vehicles present an increased number of complex interconnected cooling systems and demands more of our materials offering”, said Didier Chomier, Global Marketing Manager for Automotive at Solvay. “A historical leader for thermal management of internal combustion engines, our Technyl® Blue range for both injection and extrusion now have all the assets to prove itself in the electric vehicle market.

The new Technyl® Blue D 218CR V50 grade for injection molding provides total cost reduction versus specialty polymers such as polyphthalamide (PPA) and polyphenylene sulphide (PPS). It offers high mechanical strength, design flexibility, excellent surface aspect and easy processing for applications including thermostat housings and water pumps.

The Technyl® Blue range for extrusion offers an attractive cost/performance ratio compared to metals, such as aluminium, and alternative polymers including long-chain polyamides, notably PA12. This extrusion range is ideal for air conditioning and cooling lines for eV/HeV battery and engine systems.

This offering is backed by the Technyl® Force extensive experience in thermal management. Unveiled at K 2019, HUB by Technyl® is a unique platform – which includes comprehensive APT® application testing centre – that connects upgraded services to provide customer innovation with enhanced capabilities and synergies for eco-design agility and cost optimization.
