Applications for electronics
Our automotive electronic products meet the increased demand and growing volume of electrical wiring in cars. The products ensure higher power output and lower emissions while still meeting lightweight design and reliability demands.
Electronic control unit – improving the electronic control unit
With engineering plastics like Ultramid® (PA6, PA66, PA66/6, PA610, PA6T/6) and Ultradur® (PBT), a transmission’s electronic control unit can be improved, allowing for smoother gear changes, no interruption in power, and a better fuel economy.
Cable system – perfectly reliable
“Safety first” is BASF’s motto when it comes to anti-lock braking systems, electronic stability programs and electronic cables. The thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer Elastollan® (TPU) for cable sheatings e.g. for sensors and 360° review cameras and the soft integral foam Elastofoam® I (PU) for cable harnesses ensure smooth data flows – even under extreme conditions.
EMI-shielding – shield it smartly
BASF provides a cost efficient alternative in comparison to aluminum die-cast. Electromagnetic shielding (EMI-shielding) made of flame-retardant Ultramid® (PA6, PA66, PA66/6, PA610, PA6T/6) with a thin metal layer allows automotive manufacturers to save weight and installation space at the same time.
Sensor housing solutions – robust housing
For senor applications, Ultradur® HR (PBT) has established itself as a robust and versatile housing material.
It is used for sensors for the automated driving.
