Sensors & Solenoids

 
 
 

Customized materials for sensor systems throughout the vehicle

DuPont offers advanced polymer solutions for the growing sensors market. Our materials are designed to increase the durability of components for better safety, efficiency, and connectivity for sensors, switches, connectors, and electronic control units. Flame-retardant grades of new non-halogenated solutions are also available.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Electrically-friendly, stabilized solutions

Our materials are reliable when exposed to oils, various voltages, and high heat and humidity. They can also be laser welded without compromising electronic components in the housing. Additional benefits of our Zytel® organic heat-stabilized polyamides and Crastin® polyesters in sensor and solenoid applications enable our customers to achieve:

• Lower electrochemical corrosion with electrically-friendly polyamides 
• Chemical resistance via organic heat-stabilized polyphosphoric acids (PPAs) 
• Improved thermal conductivity 
• Radio frequency transmission quantification for radar housings
• Technologies for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding 
• Improved laser transparency for polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) grades for laser transmission welding
• Tight overmolding of epoxy-encapsulated electronics/polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and lead frames
