XPE®-AV4 is an advanced intumescent with improved low-temperature performance and is designed to function as a mechanical support and exhaust gas seal for ceramic substrates. Support mat durability is critical to assure a robust design for high-efficiency emission control systems. Currently, the market employs a variety of mechanisms to improve cold holding performance and erosion resistance. However, these techniques add cost as well as extra production steps to the system.
XPE-AV4 eliminates these costs by offering improved cold holding at substrate skin temperature below 300°C (572°F), while maintaining high temperature performance above 950°C (1742°F) .
XPE-AV4 also offers excellent erosion resistance and is not affected by gasoline, diesel, water or urea condensates, making it ideal for a wide range of exhaust after treatment systems including low temperatures under body converters or flex-fuel systems.
