DSM Engineering Plastics, Heerlen, Netherlands, has announced the availability of a new grade of high-flow Stanyl polyamide 46 designed for elements of aircraft jet engines.
Stanyl 46HF4130 is a 30% glass fiber reinforced compound that was initially developed for use in the intake portion of the Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine, engineered for noise reduction and minimum environmental impact. The engine uses 50 panels with highly complex geometry to minimize noise through a complex section of the engine duct. Molded Stanyl thermoplastic components replace hand-built, glass-reinforced plastic parts.
Thin and large, the components must withstand the impact of bird strikes at temperatures ranging from 50-150°C, while resisting warpage. Telephone: 31-45-578-81-11; Fax: 31-45-571-97-53; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Web: www.dsmep.com
