Honeywell Turbo Technologies, a division of Honeywell Inc., chose Stanyl polyamide 46 for its Garrett turbocharger inlet elbow in diesel engines. A turbocharger is used to route hot gases leaving the engine after combustion directly to the turbine wheel to make it rotate. The inlet elbow is fastened to the metal housing of the turbocharger and helps direct cold inlet air into the unit for compression and combustion. The elbow is attached to the housing without a gasket, requiring a flat and blemish-free interface.

The Stanyl grade TW200F6 is ideal for the application, offering high heat resistance and retention of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. In addition, Stanyl provides superior fatigue resistance. The elbow, currently used on diesel trucks, will eventually be used in vans and other light/medium duty trucks.
