Automotive Component Applications

Automotive component applications represent the market segment where PPS will continue to experience significant growth. In addition to exhibiting excellent elevated temperature performance and chemical resistance (to gasoline, engine/transmission fluids), there exist cost reduction benefits associated with increased productivity through injection molding. In recent years, PPS has successfully replaced metal, aromatic nylons (PPA, 46 nylon), phenolic polymers and bulk molding compounds (BMC) in a wide variety of engineered vehicle components.
Due to the extensive DIC.PPS product portfolio, there exist products which will deliver the performance features required for even the most demanding component applications – ranging from the smallest electrical connector to the largest charge air cooler located under the hood of many globally produced vehicles. A wide range of DIC.PPS grades are used, in addition to the standard grades of glass fiber reinforced FZ-11XX & FZ-21XX Series and the FZ-36XX & FZ-66XX Series with excellent cost performance, the Z Series such as Super Tough Z-230 and Z-650 is expanding the application ranges due to its heat shock resistance, vibration and impact resistance required for automotive component parts.
