SIKO’s high performance PPA composite material are widely used to manufacture high precision, high temperature resistant and high strength products. Especially for automotive engine peripheral products, which need to cope with increasingly stringent aging requirements, high-temperature nylon has gradually become the best choice for automotive engine peripheral materials.



Automotive high-performance reinforcement materials have excellent balanced properties such as:


Excellent mechanical properties, high strength, high toughness

Ø   Excellent hydrolysis resistance, high mechanical properties after      long-term soaking in hot and cold water

Ø   Excellent refrigerant resistance, meet the automotive material refrigerant resistance test standard

Ø   High-gloss surface, no floating fiber on the surface of 35-40%GF reinforced material, high brightness

Ø   Meet the requirements of environmental protection, good dimensional stability



SIKO typical successful applications in automotive field:
