INFORMATION & IDEAS
Zytel® Plus is helping automakers reduce weight and integrate parts in powertrain systems, making vehicles lighter, more fuel efficient and helps to reduce total system costs.
Zytel® PLUS nylon has the ability to retain properties after heat aging or long term exposure to hot oil and hot water, allows longer part service time, better reliability, and invites more opportunity to replace costly metals or specialty polymers to reduce part cost and lower mass.
DuPont collaborates with customers worldwide to develop innovative metal replacement applications to make cars, planes and other equipment more fuel- and cost-efficient.
DuPont Performance Polymers brings global knowledge to local application development at innovation center facilities located in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
As more electric cars take to the roads, warning sounds are necessary to mitigate the risk these quiet vehicles pose, and manufacturers are working to ensure that they do not become a disturbance to drivers and city residents.
DuPont offers a wide range of heat resistant plastics to replace metal, ceramics and other polymers in uses from automotive engines to oil and gas production.
DuPont materials help power today’s lower-cost, high-performance photovoltaic systems, from low friction bearings to flame-retardant module housings.
DuPont™ Vespel® parts and shapes and DuPont™ Delrin® acetal resin are high-strength, low-friction mechanical plastics that deliver performance for automotive, consumer, and industrial applications.
