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.
Vamac® and Viton® are used in automotive connectors made for high heat and harsh chemical underhood applications.
DuPont specialty materials for the wire and cable industryare used to makeinsulated and jacketed cables thinner, strongerand flame-retardant, without adding halogens, for applications from -70ºC to 125ºC.
Vespel® wear rings used in centrifugal pumps to replace metal parts for improved reliability and performance.
Proven performance and durability, excellent resistance to flex fatigue and broad temperature use make DuPont™ Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer the ideal material for flexible boots, bushings and bumpers in chassis suspension components
DuPont is a leading global supplier of advanced engineering polymers for electrical connectors, offering a variety of specifically tailored grades that address important functional and manufacturing demands.
Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts include a range of high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) seals for oil and gas industry downhole uses, with resistance to rapid gas decompression, heat and chemicals.
DuPont polymers help make mechanical gears lighter, faster, quieter and more durable in applications from mechanical assemblies, such as office equipment, to actuators and other automotive parts.
DuPont engineering thermoplastic medical device materials support design flexibility and help meet regulatory requirements in advanced healthcare applications.
DuPont™ Vamac® contributes to a longer life for heavy-duty oil pans & cylinder head cover gaskets.
DuPont offers a range of electrical plastics that enable electrical & electronic designers to tailor their components in line with legislation, industry demands and market trends; while optimizing production through faster cycle times, smaller sizes and reduced costs.
With excellent color stability and high heat deflection, DuPont polymers for appliances provide high-quality parts that can replace some metal components in stoves, irons and other home appliances.
DuPont oil and gas polymers are chosen for tested and demonstrated barrier, adhesion, thermal and chemical resistance in exploration, production and refining sealing uses.
When the design objective is durable, beautiful, fast-drying, stain-resistant automotive carpet, the more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based products is DuPont™ Sorona®. High-performance Sorona® fiber contains 37% renewably-sourced, plant-based content by weight and consumes less non-renewable energy during manufacture than nylon 6.
DuPont™ Sorona® has stain resistance engineered directly into the fiber so automotive fabric resists staining for the life of the textile. Durable, quick-drying, easy-to-clean, high-performance Sorona® also contains 37% renewably-sourced material by weight.
Ideal for use in performance fabrics for active outdoor apparel, Sorona® provides comfort stretch and good color fastness to maintain bright, bold colors.
Sorona® fiber and Sorona® EP polymers provide high-quality, renewably sourced materials for automotive fabric. The Sorona® product line helps reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the dependence on petroleum without compromising performance.
In response to the automotive industry’s desire to create sustainable products without compromising safety and performance, DuPont™ has launched one of its latest technological advancement, Hytrel RS, in air bag deployment covers.
DuPont has a range of materials that provide durable heat and chemical resistance in thermoplastic tubing and elastomeric hose for automotive engine, industrial, and oil and gas uses.
For automotive product engineers that are looking for improved efficiencies and assembly techniques, DuPont™ Delrin® acetal homopolymer provides the required combination of high elongation and stiffness to enable the use of snap fit features on Window Regulator Applications
