USES AND APPLICATIONS
Superior resistance to aggressive chemicals and extreme temperatures, great surface appearance and low cost of processing make the DuPont™ Zytel® family the ideal material for sealed and unsealed engine and driveline covers and housings.
Air ducts and turbocharger hoses operate in hot and stressful environments that involve pressure, engine oil and blow-by-gases. These conditions can induce rapid heat aging and compromise the performance in all but the highest performing plastic and rubber materials.
DuPont™ Kevlar® helps provide strength, endurance, and stability to enhance automotive power train and body components such as brake pads, clutches and gaskets.
DuPont™ Vamac® contributes to a longer life for heavy-duty oil pans & cylinder head cover gaskets.
The automotive industry relies on thick film materials for automotive electronics from DuPont, which offer the most attractive cost/reliability/performance combination available on the market today.
DuPont™ Surlyn® for polymer modification is used as a processing aid and compatibilizer in PET. It also is used as a nylon toughener in automotive parts.
