Technyl® Blue Range

  • Built on the proven strengths of Technyl® 34NG series, Technyl® Blue is a wide range of products offering a 15 to 60 percent enhanced hydrolysis resistance versus standard polyamides 66 (PA66). 
  • It also includes a new compound which provides resistance to road salts used in low-temperature regions. 
  • Main immediate applications are radiator end tanks, oil filter housings/modules and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) heat exchangers.

James Mitchell, Automotive Market Director for Solvay’s Performance Polyamides Global Business Unit, explained:
“Engine parts manufactured from Technyl® Blue resists hot glycol and de-icing salt attack under extreme conditions. Our new range also offers high flowability, excellent surface aspect and superior processability when compared to specialty polymers.”

Evaluation for High Demanding Components

Major global automotive OEMs and Tier 1 already trust Technyl® Blue and are currently evaluating these materials for highly demanding components such as active cooling valves and e-water pumps.

Solvay Performance Polyamides supports customers with a complete array of technical services designed to speed the time to market of new applications, from advanced material characterization to application validation. This offering includes predictive simulation with MMI® Technyl® Design1, 3D printing of PA6-based functional prototypes in Sinterline® PA6 powders as well as part testing at fully equipped APT® Technyl® Validation centers.
