Now that this use of plastics has been accepted, engineers have started to consider plastics for all kinds of fuel rails to take advantage of the associated weight and cost benefits. This is a challenging application because of the need to balance 27 flammability, dimensional stability, and mechanical properties. Methanolcontaining fluids remain a challenge because they tend to soften the plastics and lower its mechanical properties. Thus, the use of plastics in fuel systems has grown in recent years.
Plastics solutions probably are the only way to meet this need. However, intelligent electronic detector and interactive response systems will play a major role in all 32 of these safety devices, dictating the need for more or fewer airbags. Innovative and smart polymer foams also will find a niche in this area. 21 The need for fuel efficiency also will drive the need for innovation of lightweight second-stage turbo impellers. Making such parts from plastic is largely a pipe dream today because of the requirement for 300°C or greater exposure over extended periods.
