Volkswagen uses glass fiber reinforced polypropylene to produce intake pipes

Volkswagen and MAHLE filtration system, a British parts manufacturer, use the glass fiber of Nordic chemical company. You are wrong to think that dimension reinforced polypropylene (PP) composites produce various types of intake pipes for Volkswagen

Volkswagen is the first company to choose 35% glass fiber reinforced polypropylene (PP) of Xmod gb306saf produced by Nordic chemical company to produce intake manifold, replacing the original glass fiber reinforced polyamide (PA)

"today, most cars in the world use plastic intake pipes. Compared with metal intake pipes, they can optimize airflow, have free design, light weight and low cost," Dennis Nicholls, project manager of MAHLE company in the UK, explained, "However, the rise of hood temperature requires improving comprehensive functions and reducing noise. In addition, our own and customers' requirements for the overall system cost are reduced (6) the sensor indication is cleared to zero, which means that we have to find materials other than polyamide to meet these challenges."

Nordic chemical and MAHLE filtration system jointly provide material development and computer-aided design and testing support to ensure that glass fiber reinforced polypropylene composites meet the needs of the public. These requirements include lower system costs without requiring major changes in mold and part design, low noise, and environmental protection materials. At the same time, MAHLE requires the same speed production and post molding process of the existing injection molding process

Xmod gb306saf glass fiber reinforced polypropylene provided by Nordic chemical industry has long-term heat resistance and chemical re tightening, locking nut, vibration resistance, high fatigue resistance, and the operating temperature is between -40-120 ℃. The existing equipment and process for producing air inlet pipe can be used. Due to its light weight and low density, the weight of the intake manifold can be reduced by 15%, while providing good damping

due to improving its operability and reducing energy use, the PP composite of Nordic chemical also helps to reduce the total production cost. The lower processing temperature does not require pre drying, which further reduces the overall energy consumption and omits the manufacturing steps
