Should the temperature level increase as a consequence of tougher diesel exhaust emission limits (Stage IIIB, IV and V as well as Tier 4 final and Euro 6), the suitability of PE and XPE for future vehicle generations has to be subject to critical scrutiny in individual cases.
Elkamet has developed Polytherm for use in diesel tanks with higher temperature requirements. This new polyolefin system allows for continuous operation at up to 100°C while offering excellent low-temperature impact resistance at the same time.
For particularly high temperature demands Elkamet can offer diesel tanks made of the proven polyamide PA6 (nylon 6).Continuous operating temperatures of up to 110°C are then possible. Also available for diesel tanks are PA6 types with increased and high low-temperature impact resistance.
