It’s no wonder why DuPont solutions are used in major bridge projects like the Stillwater Bridge connecting Minnesota and Wisconsin.  DuPont materials were chose for its high performance over traditional rubber insulation and PVC, thanks to its proven effectiveness with:

  • Better winding flexibility
  • Durability
  • Cost-effectiveness 
  • Reliability
  • Thermal and weather resistance 

Our solutions: Zytel®, Zytel® HTN, Crastin®, Hytrel®, Vamac®, and Silicone Masterbatch
