Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear Physics Forums members,

I humbly ask your guidance on a project I've just started :blushing:. I need to find a material that can be fabricated for a device that is to be placed in a car engine compartment. Forged, cast or cut, it must withstand the heat of the engine (although it will not be directly mounted to the engine block), -40 degree Celsius, the shock of hard driving, and be environmentally friendly.

I looked at the bioplastic from Mazda, but unsure if it can withstand the heat?

I appreciate any information your collective may have on this. :smile:

Thanks!
Sixer

Steel and aluminium are environment friendly because they're recycled.
