Electronic & Electrical Materials
With a deep understanding of materials science, a commitment to technology leadership, a wide range of process expertise and a long history of innovation, DuPont offers the industry’s broadest array of high performance electronic and electrical materials.
The DuPont electronics and electrical portfolio includes materials for hybrid, rigid and flexible circuits; specialized ceramic, polymer thick film compositions (PTF) and GreenTape™ low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) materials; and materials for the fabrication and packaging of semiconductors.
When you’re designing products that require electrical insulation systems (EIS), DuPont can make your job easier because we offer the industry’s largest number of EIS that have been pre-approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and recognized to IEC standards. These systems include a wide range of DuPont materials including: films, varnishes, aramid papers, pressboard products, thermoplastic resins and wire enamels.
