Product Description
Amodel® A-1933 HSL is a 33% glass reinforced grade of polyphthalamide (PPA) resin. This grade was developed specifically for improved performance in a 50/50 ethylene glycol and water environment. This material was tested using the aggressive automotive coolant system, ethylene glycol with organic acid stabilizer, at 130°C (266°F). It exceeds the performance required by the automotive industry for polymeric materials exposed to high-temperature antifreeze solutions.

Potential applications include a variety of automotive components such as thermostat housings, heater core endcaps, heater hose connectors, and water inlets, outlets, and valves.
