DSM Unveils Arnite® A-X07455, a Hydrolysis Resistant PET for Dimension-critical Auto Parts

Published on 2013-07-16. Author : SpecialChem

Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences Company, has launched Arnite® A-X07455, the first high performance PET (polyethylene terephthalate) engineering plastic that is highly resistant to hydrolysis. This breakthrough development opens up opportunities for significant weight and cost benefits over metal in automobile engine compartment applications. As a result of continuous engine downsizing, particularly in the compact car segment, temperatures under the hood are going up, putting extra demands on plastics components used in this area.
