DSM Engineering Plastics has launched Akulon Fuel Lock, a mono-polyamide 6 technology

December 17/2010

(DSM) -- DSM Engineering Plastics has launched a unique new material that can make a significant contribution to air quality. Akulon Fuel Lock, a mono-polyamide 6 technology, dramatically reduces evaporative emissions from the fuel tanks of non-road outdoor equipment and vehicles with small, spark-ignition engines.


In fact, tests of a tank with a nominal 2 mm wall thickness molded from Akulon Fuel Lock showed an exceptionally low evaporative emission rate less than 20 percent of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation limit.


Such ultra-low emissions not only comply with tough agency regulations, but also enable thin-wall designs that reduce system costs. Akulon Fuel Lock further supports sustainable practices by avoiding fluorination, a traditional barrier technology for high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that can pose environmental risks.


The new Akulon material for injection and blow molding applications provides outstanding resistance to permeation right from the container, without the need for additives or post-molding treatments. As a mono-material, it simplifies processing, compared to expensive multi-layer fabrication technologies.
