Fan Shroud

This very-thin-wall (1.124 mm), lightweight fan shroud meets the high heat deflection temperature and strength targets of the incumbent 30% GF PA 6/6 material with a 30% GF PP grade. Significant work was done to modify resin chemistry to optimize morphology, crystallinity, molecular weight, process conditions, low-temperature impact, heat stabilizer additives, and coupling agents for the polymer. This is the first PP compound to meet the applications requirements. The solution lowered cost 33% and weight 16.8% while saving an estimated 1,270 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually .
