PSA Peugeot Citro

DSM Engineering Plastics (Sittard) : 21 January, 2004  (Application Story)
For the production of two manifolds, PSA Peugeot Citro
Akulon PA6 from DSM Engineering Plastics was selected by PSA Peugeot CitroŽn for the production of two new manifolds. Engineered and produced by Mecaplast/ Namkey, the TU5 JP4 is an advanced conventional manifold. The other key application is the DV4 TD Ė a complete module, consisting of manifold, integrated valve cover, air fuel filter and EGR.

Complex and highly demanding parts such as these need to perform to exceptionally high standards Ė as set by steel and aluminium. Components are expected to perform under high pressure for extended periods of time Ė and need to outlive the carís economic lifetime.

In addition to delivering the same performance as steel and aluminium, Akulon PA6 also allows for parts integration and weight reduction. With outstanding material behaviour and easy recycling, Akulon PA6 offers superior heat ageing resistance, better weldability and easier processability than PA66, leading to better price/performance levels.

Akulon PA6 is available in a wide range of grades, ranging from heat stabilised to glass filled blow moulding grades, and was developed to allow systems suppliers and engineers to reduce production costs and weight, leading to an overall saving in fuel consumption.

Manufactured by DSM Engineering Plastics, a business group within DSM Performance Materials, Akulon PA6 is widely used for a wide range of under-the-bonnet applications such as engine covers, acoustic covers, pulley covers and air-ducts.
