Zytel® HTN high performance polyamide

Bridge the Performance Gap With DuPont™ Zytel® HTN

A family of cost-effective, high-performance polyamides offering strength, durability and ease of processing.

When the goal is reducing weight, improving strength, enhancing durability, increasing thermal performance, simplifying processing, or all of the above, Zytel® HTN high-performance polyamide resin is a logical choice.

These high-performance resins are available in specific grades that sustain high strength and stiffness over a wide range of temperatures, chemicals and moisture exposure.

Replacing Metal, Reducing Costs

Zytel® HTN can replace metal parts that must withstand high temperature tolerances (such as engine cooling, handheld devices, and non-halogenated connectors), while reducing total cost and weight through parts consolidation.
