Glass reinforced polyamide will be used to produce the air intake manifold and the fuel rail of the Citroën C4 and the C5 2l biofuel engines in Brazil.
Glass reinforced polyamide will be used to produce the air intake manifold and the fuel rail of the Citroën C4 and the C5 2l biofuel engines in Brazil.

It will also be used in the Peugeot 407, 307 and 308 car series.

Rhodia's Technyl® A 218 V30 black, a glass fibre reinforced polyamide (PA) 66 is being used for the air intake manifold and the fuel rail used for the Brazilian market. Brazil is a big user of bio-fuels. This high temperature resistance of Technyl PA 66 makes it suitable for under-the-hood applications in new cars.

The two companies worked in close collaboration on the project; Rhodia Brazil developed the simulation analysis, while Magneti Marelli Brazil dealt with part validations.
