Fuel Resistant Plastics

Publisher: Celanese
Reviewing how plastics have replaced steel in many fuel components, this paper presents different properties of fuel system plastics along with their applications. Several properties like chemical resistance, dimensional stability, and permeability which are important for the plastics to survive long-term fuel contact are discussed in this paper. It briefly details about the study conducted by Ticona, which includes a test performed on different combinations of fuel blends and plastics, in order to evaluate withstanding capabilities of these plastics with some aggressive fuels. Figures illustrating fuel module made of ticona celcon acetal copolymer, and weight change in CM15A at 121C are also included. The paper concludes that with lower permeability and enhanced dimensional stability plastic manufactures could improve their products cope with new fuels, and suggest Ticona's Hostaform C 13031XF would be the best choice.
