'Bexloy' automotive engineering resins, the latest in a series of automotive products produced by Du Pont, are composed of different generic polymer systems designed for large car body parts and bumpers. 'Bexloy' c, the first developmental resin system, is based on amorphous nylon. Its makers claim it offers car makers cost savings, more flexible styling, lower weight and easier processing when compared with metal. End users should benefit from more fuel-efficient cars with bodies that do not rust, that resist dents and that have an extended life. 'Bexloy' has already proved itself in commercial applications, and is being used in a number of interesting developmental projects that exploit the benefits of this material. It can be blow-moulded or injection-moulded, and gives an out-of-the-mould surface for a class a finish than can be painted on-line with metal parts. (TRRL)
