By previous findings of engineering plastics in the field of turbocharging components,
the options of high-performance polymers usage are found according to its properties, designs,
function and manufacturing processes.

During this research, a design observation of compressor housing is done where
different types of manufacturing methods and cost are analysed. This research paper relates the
investigations of selected high temperature resistant polymers based on properties and their
possibility of manufacturing methods. Since manufacturing high performance polymer product
is more complicated than metal components, the comparison between pros and cons of
polymers and aluminium alloy will be conducted in this paper.

Due to different material options, tool of material selection is used to choose the most
relevant thermoplastics polymer for the compressor housing. The objective of this research
paper is to observe design aspects of turbocharger compressor housing with thermoplastics and
check the commercial feasibility of its manufacturing methods.
