Flu­o­ropoly­mers from Opti­nova

Auto components India - - CONTENTS -

The global au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try is grow­ing strong. As the in­dus­try is be­com­ing more in­de­pen­dent of the eco­nomic cy­cles, the au­to­mo­bile com­pa­nies and their OEMs and com­po­nent man­u­fac­tur­ers are striv­ing for more ef­fi­ciency in the pro­duc­tion pro­cesses and are go­ing af­ter higher value ma­te­ri­als for their ap­pli­ca­tions.

In­stead of the metal pip­ings used be­fore, the OEMs are us­ing high-per­for­mance ma­te­ri­als like flu­o­ropoly­mers due to their out­stand­ing prop­er­ties. From en­gines and brakes to fuel com­po­nents and elec­tron­ics, ev­ery au­to­mo­tive sys­tem uses flu­o­ropoly­mer com­po­nents. Flu­o­ropoly­mer tub­ing so­lu­tions have high dura­bil­ity, act as va­por bar­rier and with­stand highly ag­gres­sive chem­i­cals and work flaw­less in a tem­per­a­ture en­vi­ron­ment up to 260 °C / 500 °F as well as in mi­nus de­grees.

The Opti­nova Group is serv­ing dif­fer­ent sec­tions in the au­to­mo­tive value chain since more than 30 years. Its in­ven­tory in­cludes prod­ucts suit­able for a wide range of au­to­mo­tive ap­pli­ca­tions such as smooth bore tub­ing for paint­ing robots, hot glue robots or other fluid con­veyance chal­lenges within the fuel, power steer­ing or brake sys­tems, har­ness pro­tec­tion with cut to length smooth bore tub­ing, and con­vo­luted tub­ing or spi­ral cut tub­ing. They can be used as pro­tec­tion for fi­bre op­tics, seal rings for tyre valves, and as tub­ing for fire ex­tin­guisher so­lu­tions for trucks, busses and com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles. The heat shrink­able tub­ing pro­vides a pro­tec­tive cov­er­ing for com­po­nents sub­jected to ex­tremes of heat, mois­ture, cor­ro­sion and other crit­i­cal con­di­tions. The en­hanced tub­ing can be used for push pull ca­bles where ant stick prop­er­ties and high wear-re­sis­tance are key com­po­nents.

“All our prod­uct of­fer­ings for the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try have PPAP Level 3 doc­u­men­ta­tion, IMDS records and ISRs as well as cer­ti­fi­ca­tions ac­cord­ing to EN 10204. Our ISO 9001:2015 certification rec­og­nizes our com­mit­ment and ad­her­ence to in­ter­na­tional in­dus­try stan­dards and the ISO 14001:2015 certification and our CSR ef­forts show our com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity,” com­pany sources said.
