SOLUTIONS FOR AUTOMOTIVE RAIL EXTENSIONS
Rail extensions play a crucial role in energy absorption of frontal & rear crashes.
NORYL™ and NORYL GTX™ resins can offer unique solutions to the Automotive industry.
NORYL™ resin is an amorphous blend of polyphenylene ether (PPE) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS). This blend combines the inherent benefits of PPE (robust FR, heat resistance, excellent long-term dimensional stability, low creep, good impact resistance) with the benefits of HIPS (processability and flow).
NORYL GTX™ resin is a semi-crystalline alloy of poly- phenylene ether (PPE) and polyamide (PA). This alloy combines the inherent benefits of PPE (robust FR, heat resistance, excellent long-term dimensional stability, low creep, good impact resistance) with the benefits of PA (chemical and impact resistance and flow).
The result is a chemically resistant material with the stiffness, impact resistance and heat performance required for e-coat and on-line painting. The low density of unfilled NORYL GTX resin can provide part-weight savings of up to 25% over glass or mineral filled resins.
Additionally, NORYL GTX resin may provide sustainability benefits due to its light weight and may be considered for exterior body panels, in-and-on-line painted parts, and EV battery protection.
POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF NORYL GTX RESIN:
Weight reduction up to 60% vs. steel
Ease of assembly
Enhanced front crash performance vs steel
Ability to consolidate multiple rail extension to address IIHS and EURONCAP requirements for SORB and MPDB impacts
