At-a-glance guide to DuPont polymer properties and application development opportunities.
General Motors’ use of DuPont™ Zytel® PLUS nylon for its Ecotec 2.0-liter turbo powering Cadillac CTS vehicles captured the ‘Most Innovative Use of Plastics” Award in the Materials category from the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Automotive Division. The award-winning engine-appearance and acoustic cover is molded by Camoplast Polymer Solutions, Richmond, Quebec, Canada.
DuPont supports efforts/initiatives to improve sustainability in the automotive industry with high performance and renewably-sourced polymers that can help increase fuel efficiency while reducing energy loss, emissions and costs.
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.
