The company developed a new PPS grade to improve the performance of electric vehicle thermal management systems (© DSM)

DSM Engineering Plastics, Parsippany, NJ/USA,, has introduced a new PPS (polyphenylene sulphide) grade to improve the performance of electric vehicle thermal management systems. Xytron G4080HR is a 40% glass-reinforced PPS engineered for heat aging performance, hydrolysis resistance, dimensional stability, chemical resistance at elevated temperatures and intrinsic flame retardancy.

Since Xytron G4080HR is specifically formulated for typical EV thermal management system lifecycles, it maintains its strength at continuous operating temperatures exceeding 130◦C for 6000 to 10,000 hours. In a recent 3000 hour 135◦C water-glycol fluid test versus a comparable competitor grade, Xytron G4080HR delivered 114% higher tensile strength and 63% higher elongation at break.

According to the company the combination of resistance to heat, moisture and chemicals make the Xytron family of materials a solution for applications in many industries, including Automotive (powertrain parts, turbo systems, thermal management, automotive electronics and lighting), Electrical and Electronics (connectors, structural parts, e-motors, bobbins, switches and sensors) and Industrial (water management, compressors, heat pumps, appliances, small engines, aerospace, oil and gas, pneumatics and hydraulics).

The material is manufactured by DSM NHU Engineering Plastics (Zhejiang) Co. Ltd., a joint venture of Royal DSM and specialty chemicals producer Zhejiang NHU Special Materials Co., Ltd. (NHU).
