PA grade deployed in monolayer rotomolded fuel tanks


An innovative polyamide (PA) 6 technology developed by DSM Engineering Plastics forms the basis of a new solution for rotomolding monolayer tanks developed by ICO Polymers (Houston, TX), a leading producer of rotational molding grades.

The monolayer PA 6 solution, named Icorene 7620 Fuel Lock, was developed for small engine tanks for off-road vehicles to comply with the latest legislation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB), which was introduced to minimize emissions from fuel evaporation.

The new monolayer PA 6 solution is based on Akulon Fuel Lock PA 6 from DSM, originally designed for injection- and blowmolded fuel tanks that are used for engines in hand-held and ground-supported lawn and garden equipment, as well as recreational, professional landscaping, and marine applications....
