Rapid-test agreement near on automotive resin

DETROIT -- Six major automakers and 19 suppliers are close to agreeing on a fast-track testing process for replacements to a resin that’s in dangerously short supply.

The Automotive Industry Action Group said Monday that companies including General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co., and Honda Motor Co. are expected to finalize the plan next week.

The plan would set standards for testing materials that could replace PA-12 resin. Such testing usually takes months.

PA-12 is used for fuel and brake lines. It has been in tight supply since an explosion last month at a German factory.
