Solvay Performance Polyamides presents the leading range for thermal management and superior chemical resistance

November 09/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Solvay Performance Polyamides introduces the Technyl Blue range, a heat stabilized material family for automotive thermal management combining superior hydrolysis and thermal ageing performance in presence of aggressive coolants, according to the company's press release.

Built on the proven strengths of Technyl 34NG series, Technyl Blue is a wide range of products offering a 15 to 60 percent enhanced hydrolysis resistance versus standard polyamides 66 (PA66). It also includes a new compound which provides resistance to road salts used in low-temperature regions. Main immediate applications are radiator end tanks, oil filter housings/modules and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) heat exchangers.

"Engine parts manufactured from Technyl Blueresists hot glycol and de-icing salt attack under extreme conditions,"explained James Mitchell, Automotive Market Director for Solvays Performance Polyamides Global Business Unit. "Our new range also offers high flowability, excellent surface aspect and superior processability when compared to specialty polymers."

Major global automotive OEMs and Tier 1 already trust Technyl Blue and are currently evaluating these materials for highly demanding components such as active cooling valves and e-water pumps.

Solvay Performance Polyamides supports customers with a complete array of technical services designed to speed the time to market of new applications, from advanced material characterizationto application validation. This offering includes predictive simulation with MMI Technyl Design1, 3D printing of PA6-based functional prototypes in Sinterline PA6 powders as well as part testing at fully equipped APT Technyl Validation centers.

As MRC informed before, in early July 2016, Solvay completed the divestment of its shareholding in Inovyn (London), bringing to an end Solvay's chlorvinyls joint venture with Ineos. Solvay received exit cash proceeds amounting to EUR335 million (USD370.7 million). The dissolution of the jv follows regulatory clearances from the relevant authorities.

Inovyn was formed on 1 July 2015 as a jv between Ineos and SolVin, a subsidiary of Solvay. Solvay and Ineos signaled their decision to end their chlorvinyls jv in March this year.

Solvay, with a market share 27%, is the second largest PVC manufacturer in Europe, after Kerling with 29% of the market. Solvay is headquartered in Brussels with about 30,900 employees spread across 53 countries. It generated pro forma net sales of EUR12.4 bn in 2015, with 90% made from activities where it ranks among the worlds top 3 players.
