Solvay launches new polyamide for thermal management systems

at k 2016, solvay launched its new technyl redx polyamide that integrates a “smart molecule” technology, which activates under high temperatures and leads to rapid cross-linking that boosts the strength of the material to a significantly higher rate than at room temperature.

“today, more than 12 million engines use technyl® heat performance technologies,” said dr. james mitchell, global automotive market director for solvay engineering plastics. “our materials enable car manufacturers to overcome engine downsizing constraints, such as greatly increased temperatures and pressures. there is a need for new material solutions which resist the higher continuous heat stress of new generation engines without compromising on costs and performance.”


technyl redx, according to a press release from solvay, is processed at temperatures below 100°c, which makes it easy to manufacture, and it was tested for more than 3,000 hours at 220°c with a tensile gain of more than 50 percent as well as high retention property.


during the injection molding of car parts, technyl redx acts as a high-flow pa66. it is only when the vehicle is in use and the temperatures are raised that the technology kicks in and creates the stronger material.


in this way, technyl redx could reduce the need for heat shields and assist car manufacturers who are looking to make their vehicles lighter and more compact.
