Radar for autonomous driving

With Ultradur® RX, BASF has now developed a modified polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) specifically for radar sensor applications in vehicles. The different product grades of the new Ultradur® RX series are materials designed for absorption and reduction of interference radiation in the range of 76 to 81 GHz. Thanks to its good resistance against media such as splash water, oils or salt, Ultradur® offers an exceptional protection for sensor housings. In addition, the new material shields the sensitive electronics in the housings against disturbing electromagnetic waves from other vehicles.

The materials that are used here are Ultradur® HR LT, Ultradur® LUX and Ultradur® RX. The material benefits that come with these products include hydrolysis resistance, suitability for laser welding, good dimensional stability and EMI shielding properties for radars. Additionally, the materials are orange color stable after aging test 1080h 140°C as well as radar transparent and radar absorbing.

Hydrogen tank inner liner


The material used here is Ultramid®. Benefits of this material are its chemical resistance, its dimensional stability and its leak tightness vs. H2.
