Ford Engine Cover
This production ready part combined Zoltek PX35 carbon fiber and PA6.6 to create a part that was lighter in weight with improved performance compared to the original cast aluminum version. The part mass was successfully reduced by 24% without sacrificing existing features such as engine mount integration or
crank seal housing.
Carbon Fiber Engine Cover Key Features
Load Limiters at all through bolt interfaces
Knurled Threaded Inserts at all attachment interfaces
Produced with Zoltek PX35 Nylon CompatIble Chopped Fiber
ZOLTEK PX35 Chopped Fiber is commonly compounded with general engineering thermoplastics (e.g., PC, Nylon, etc.) and high-temperature thermoplastic resins (e.g, PEEK, PEI, etc.). The resulting composite offers high strength-to-weight and stiffnessto-weight ratios. Our chopped fibers have a high bulk density value, which allows for cleaner and more consistent flow rates. They also distribute easily during compounding, thereby improving process and product performance.
