INFORMATION & IDEAS
DuPont is collaborating to help establish guidelines for communicating the environmental benefits of renewablysourced plastics.
Ford, Fiat and Toyota walked away with innovation awards at the 2011 Society of Plastics Engineers “Most Innovative Use of Plastics Awards” event for components that use two renewably sourced DuPont materials — DuPont™ Zytel® RS nylon and DuPont™ Sorona® EP polymer — and one component using DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET.
With global biofuel use expected to double by 2015, DuPont has developed a new generation of heat-, pressure- and chemical-resistant elastomers for fuel system components that can withstand aggressive fuel environments.
DuPont Performance Polymers brings global knowledge to local application development at innovation center facilities located in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
DuPont collaborates with customers worldwide to develop innovative metal replacement applications to make cars, planes and other equipment more fuel- and cost-efficient.
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.
Renewably sourced DuPont biopolymers are used in sustainable plastics that can replace oil-based materials and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
DuPont has an understanding of the consumer electronics market gained through experience. This understanding helps DuPont work with designers, manufacturers and OEMs to develop materials for electronic devices that continue to address the challenges that the industry faces.
