Material fatigue: In Wöhler three-point-bending tests, Durethan BKV30PH2.0 endures more than two million load cycles at a bending load of 2.75 kilonewtons – whereas a standard polyamide 6 with 30 percent glass fiber content already fails after around 700,000 cycles. Photo: LANXESS AG

The cover of the tailgate handle system with integrated rear view camera is made from the non-reinforced PBT Pocan C1202LT. It is joined by laser transmission welding to the handle system housing made of Pocan B7425 in such a way that the locking electronics are sealed watertight. Photo: LANXESS AG
