Title: POLYARYLENE SULFIDE COMPONENTS FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS
Abstract:
Components for automobiles are described that exhibit high strength and flexibility. The components are formed from a polyarylene sulfide that exhibits high strength and flexibility characteristics. Methods for forming the components are also described. Formation methods include dynamic vulcanization of a polyarylene sulfide composition that includes an impact modifier dispersed throughout the polyarylene sulfide. A crosslinking agent is combined with the other components of the composition following dispersal of the impact modifier throughout the composition. The automotive components can include tubular member such as pipes and hoses that can be utilized in exhaust systems, charge air systems, urea tanks, fuel systems, and so forth.
