Steering-angle sensor incorporates new plastics technology

Abstract:
When standard PBT is used, only one-third of the intricate injection-moulding tool can be filled. In contrast, with the easy-flowing Ultradur High Speed PBT, whose good processing properties are due to BASF's specially devised nanotechnology, the sensor can be manufactured without any problems.

Further, the steering-angle sensor made of this plastic can be laser-written with a high degree of contrast, so that the parts can be marked with very fine so-called data matrix codes containing a wealth of information about the part on a very small surface area.
