Thermoplastics and thermosets offer unlimited potential for replacing metal in under-the-hood applications and clamped connections. Welded components can reduce weight by up to 50% and cost by up to 30%. Our materials are specified for rigid and flexible air management applications such as turbo ducts, hoses, tubing, sealing, resonators, manifolds, turbocharger parts, air filters and mixers.
DuPont’s air induction portfolio enables one consolidated part to replace several metal/rubber/plastic components clamped together versus an all-welded solution in pure internal combustion engines and in new hybrid electrical vehicles.
All thermoplastic grades are process-friendly for use with existing blow molding, injection molding and/or extrusion equipment, and are regrind-friendly during the production process with negligible impact on final properties and productivity.
