Our innovative high-performance plastics are developed to meet a wide variety of technological challenges in automotive. Browse these pages to learn more about how our industry experts, scientists and engineers work hand in hand with our customers to develop next generation solutions.
In today’s vehicles with internal combustion engines, electronics represent 40% of the value of the car, versus about 5% in the 1970s. For electric or hybrid vehicles, that number jumps as high as 75%. As the industry continues to focus on reducing total vehicle weight and increasing electrification, four main trends are driving the development of new electrical parts and components: Mass reduction for cost savings, miniaturization, design flexibility, and better heat management.
Whether it’s for control modules, connectors, or a variety of other e-car parts, Envalior’s broad portfolio of materials has grades specifically suited to each application. Our materials provide best-in-class heat performance, high-flow properties for the design of parts with thinner walls, and halogen-free flame retardancy.
Explore the design of parts that are more compact than their predecessors, with thin-wall components that can improve production cycle times by 25 to 40%. While more electrification of the vehicle also leads to higher voltage demands, our materials are engineered to minimize electrical breakdown in the form of tracking. With best-in-class heat performance, our materials easily withstand the high temperatures involved with surface-mount soldering techniques (SMT), as well as the high continuous use temperatures seen in more compact engine compartments.
Feeling the heat: Solutions for wire and cable
Connectors made with Stanyl have shorter cycle times in production and are easier to process and have design flexibility in creating automotive connectors
The coil insulation in E-motors requires high temperature resistant materials like PA46,PPA or PPS,Stanyl PA46 for excellent part performance and the low system costs
Overmolded components: Low pressure, high performance
High performance Electronic Control Units (ECU)
Exceeding performance in Electrical & Electronics
Electrical insulation applications must be made from materials that can withstand the harshest temperatures and conditions over an extended period.
