Putting the Pedal to the Plastic

Thermoplastic engine rocker covers, such as this one going into the Daewoo 2L engine made from Rhodia Engineering Plastics' Technyl 6/6 nylon, are common in Europe, but rare in North America. A nylon rocker cover costs 20 to 30 percent less to manufacture and weighs up to 50 percent lighter in comparison to aluminum.
