Durable, Longer-Life Automotive Electrical & Electronic Systems
DuPont’s industry-standard materials and deep expertise help automakers improve safety while meeting the challenges of design flexibility and miniaturization for automotive electrical and electronic systems.
DuPont offers a broad range of materials for automotive electrical systems and electronic control systems and displays that can withstand extreme temperatures, high impact, vibration and attack by corrosive fluids while performing over a long lifetime. Our automotive electronics materials help lower costs and extend component durability and life.
Improved Performance: With a proven track record of withstanding temperature extremes and impact, DuPont ceramic-based circuitry is the global industry standard for use in underhood applications. DuPont fluoropolymers are frequently used in headlight and engine component wiring, and as a binder for battery electrodes.
Alternative Drive: Automotive electrical insulation systems for hybrid and electrical cars include DuPont™ Nomex® paper as well as DuPont™ Kapton® polyimide films, wire enamels, and resins and varnishes.
Safety: DuPont makes advanced new safety systems possible, such as automatic blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control and parking assistance.
INFORMATION & IDEAS
DuPont collaborates with customers worldwide to develop innovative metal replacement applications to make cars, planes and other equipment more fuel- and cost-efficient.
DuPont™ Kapton® polyimide films make innovative design solutions possible for a broad swath of automotive and other industrial applications, including photovoltaic and wind energy, aerospace, and consumer electronics.
A staple in kitchens since the 1960’s, DuPont™ Teflon® nonstick coating systems make life easier. Did you know the Teflon® brand goes far beyond cookware? It is also found across a broad range of consumer and industrial applications and processing techniques.
The very first dry film photopolymer photoresist, DuPont™ Riston® dry film revolutionized printed circuit board fabrication methods. Today, Riston® is just as critical as ever to printed wiring and circuit-board production. Fabricators choose DuPont for improved product and process solutions that keep them both competitive and profitable.
DuPont™ Voltatex® electrical insulation coatings provide the insulation market with total system solutions, and products that work together to increase your design options, while reducing costs and environmental impact.
DuPont™ Krytox® performance lubricants are nonflammable, chemically inert oils and greases that offer thermal stability for automotive and industrial applications, including bearings, seals, and gaskets.
DuPont™ Tefzel® ETFE fluoropolymer resin is a modified ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene fluoropolymer available as pellets, or as powder for rotational molding. Tefzel® ETFE resin combines mechanical toughness with an outstanding chemical inertness that approaches that of DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymer resins.
