Effects of Fuel Exposure on Physical Properties of Selected Plastics 900632
This paper will present data that is the result of testing several rigid plastics by exposure to several automotive fuels.
The fuels were selected from a list of fuels that have been suggested by several customers in the automotive industries. They are representative of fuels in service today and fuels that are expected to be used in the future.
The plastics were selected because they are candidates for use in the rigid components of fuel handling systems. These plastics might be used in fuel filter housings, quick connectors, fuel rails or throttle bodies.
The data are presented to provide design engineers with some of the information necessary for the design of rigid plastic components for fuel handling systems.
