Solutions for Automotive Fuel Systems and Smart Driving

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.

PREPERM®  for smart driving

Our ultra-low loss, thermoplastic PREPERM®  is an excellent choice for any vehicle-to-everything  and smart driving related applications.  

We are used to being surrounded by technology. While approaching 2020, we've grown accustomed to our cars assisting us when driving. Our cars are equipped with automotive radars to detect any obstacles coming in our way while parking or changing lanes. When we talk about self-driving vehicles, this is taken to another level. Autonomous driving needs cars with a lot of sensors, all of which should collaborate and share information much better than we ever do at work. Data recorded by radars, LiDAR, cameras, GPS and 5G will be merged to create very detailed real-time maps so that cars can do their micro path planning, select lanes and avoid obstacles.

Our PREPERM® material is an excellent choice for 77 Ghz automotive radars. In automotive long range radar (250 m) a 35 % difference means 35 m in beam length.​ When driving 120 km/h this equals to breaking over one second later. ​

With PREPERM® you gain an extra second. This second may save lives.​
