Heat-resistant polyamide for automotive applications in the high temperature range
Ultramid® Endure is a glass fiber-reinforced polyamide that combines excellent heat aging resistance with the good processing properties of PA 66. Ultramid® Endure is able to withstand continuous use over 3,000 hours at up to 220°C and brief temperature peaks of up to 240°C. It thus extends the application of polyamide into the high temperature range. Ultramid® Endure is suitable both for injection molding and for blow molding. This makes the plastic the perfect replacement for metal for components used in all parts of the charge air duct ‒ from the turbocharger and pipes through to the intercooler.
