HFV6 Air-Intake System

This is the first use of high-flow nylon on a structural powertrain application. The 30%-GR, high-flow nylon 6 air-inlet manifold is also the largest nylon part in automotive. Versus standard-flow grades, the new grade offered 80% higher flow and corresponding productivity improvements without significant loss of mechanical properties. Higher flow facilitates design optimization, allows for lower injection pressures, and produces parts with reduced molded-in-stress. It also has a faster crystallization rate, which shortens cooling time and reduces warp and distortion. The result is high-quality moldings with lower scrap that can be molded on smaller presses at lower energy consumption.  Its increased efficiency mean fewer tools are needed to meet production demand.
