DuPont is working with its customers and other partners to meet the growing demand for products that are rooted in non-traditional, environmentally friendly materials.
A case in point: In 2009, Salomon, a leading sporting goods supplier, used our Hytrel® RS thermoplastic elastomer in its Ghost freerider alpine ski boot.
The company chose Hytrel® RS because it provides the high-performance characteristics of traditional Hytrel® materials, but it is more environmentally friendly than products that are entirely petroleum-based. Hytrel® RS was developed using a renewably sourced polyol derived from non-food renewable sources.
Hytrel® RS products allow customers to reduce the petroleum-based materials in their products while continuing to meet the needs of the most demanding applications.
As the need for alternatively sourced products grows, DuPont’s portfolio of renewably sourced polymers will continue to lead the trend, giving designers an alternative palette from which to develop exciting new ideas.
At a symposium in California, scientists from DuPont Electronics & Imaging offered presentations on materials challenges and the company’s latest approaches to addressing them.
Power devices are emerging as critical enablers and drivers for the electronics industry. As demand rapidly escalates, the technology behind power electronics has become a priority in the semiconductor industry.
DuPont Smart Materials are a collaboration between DuPont Electronics and Imaging and DuPont Safety and Construction. They leverage DuPont’s innovative strength in the electronics and building and construction markets.
