A new modifi ed polyarylamide (MXD6 nylon) from Solvay Advanced Polymers, Alpharetta, Ga., is offered as a barrier resin for small fuel tanks and fi ller tubes. New Ixef PAA is said to meet the EPA's Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) standard and California Air Resource Board (CARB) regulations. Two- and three-layer barrier structures using PAA reportedly provide barrier performance equivalent to a fi velayer EVOH construction at reduced cost. The new material boasts superior fuelresistance and maintains its mechanical performance in new fuels such as biodiesel and ethanol-based fuels. It is aimed at small fuel tanks for watercraft, lawnmowers, and motorcycles, as well as automotive fi ller tubes and other fuel-system components.
