Solutions for Automotive Fuel Systems

Ensure safe fuel handling with electrically conductive HDPE compounds for fuel filler systems (FFS)

Refueling generates static electricity in fuel filler system. It is caused by the friction between flowing gasoline and FFS’s plastic surface. This static electricity might lead to gasoline ignition. PRE-ELEC® PE compounds for automotive fuel systems bear unique advantages compared to competing solutions; clearly improved material flow for blow molding process combined with fuel resistance and high electrically conductivity.

With Premix’s electrically conductive PRE-ELEC® PE compounds the FFS can be grounded and the risks of electrostatic charging are eliminated. We offer solutions for:

Fuel filler heads and necks
Carbon black filled PRE-ELEC® materials are a cost-effective solution for fuel filler necks. They have excellent ESCR (Environmental Stress Cracking) properties and are easy to process due to improved melt flow. HDPE base polymer ensures seamless welding to fuel filler pipe. In our product family you will find the perfect choice for parts exposed to mechanical stress during tank filling.

Fuel filler pipes
Carbon black filled PRE-ELEC® is an optimal material for inner layers of HDPE multi-layer filler pipes. It has excellent mechanical properties including ESCR combined with easy material flow in blow molding process. This leads to mechanically resistant, smooth and even inner pipe surface with less fuel turbulence.
