To prevent parts failure, thermostat housings must be molded from materials with excellent hydrolysis resistance and dimensional stability. Strength and stiffness are also necessary for optimal performance. Plastics without these characteristics will not maintain a seal over years of vehicle use, which can lead to immobility and engine damage.
Using Ascend's Vydyne R530H ensures that this piece creates a perfect seal to the engine block to maintain integrity throughout years of vehicle use. Vydyne R530H has been used in vehicles from companies such as General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. This resin meets all material end-use requirements. Vydyne resins are used for many other thermal system applications as well.
