Automotive reservoirs must have excellent resistance to under-the-hood chemicals and intense heat. The combination of heat and chemicals can cause an undesirable color shift or rapid degradation of many plastics.
Ascend's Vydyne products stand up to the combination of heat and chemicals to prevent degradation or color shifts. Using R553T (translucent) to create a translucent reservoir also allows consumers to check fluid levels without a dipstick. Eliminating the need for a dipstick makes production more economical and increases convenience.
Vydyne R533H can be used to create a reservoir cap and cover. This product's heat and chemical resistance also make it an excellent choice for black reservoirs.
Vydyne products are used in many other reservoir designs for Ford,® General Motors® and Chrysler® vehicles.
