Hoses / Fluid-management

Back to Silicone Elastomers for Automotive


Fuel efficiency of combustion engines is increasingly achieved through turbo-chargers, which deliver compressed, oxygen-rich air for the air-intake. To achieve the highest level of oxygen, the compressed hot air is chilled in the charge-air cooler. The connecting turbo-hose must be able to withstand heat up to 230°C, and more, survive charge-air pressures in excess of 2.5 bars, and to remain highly flexible even at arctic temperatures. Momentive custom elastomers are successfully used in a variety of applications in the global car and truck industry. Many hoses are equipped with a polar inliner made from Momentive’s Fluorosilicone HCR base compounds.
