USES AND APPLICATIONS
DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® fibres bring together flame and temperature resistance, strength, reinforcement, and other properties that can help improve hoses, tyres, belts, filters and other automotive components.
Vamac® and Viton® are used in automotive connectors made for high heat and harsh chemical underhood applications.
DuPont specialty materials for the wire and cable industryare used to makeinsulated and jacketed cables thinner, strongerand flame-retardant, without adding halogens, for applications from -70ºC to 125ºC.
Proven performance and durability, excellent resistance to flex fatigue and broad temperature use make DuPont™ Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer the ideal material for flexible boots, bushings and bumpers in chassis suspension components
Learn how the inherent thermal resistance of DuPont™ Nomex® makes it ideal for high-temperature automotive applications, including heat shields and other under-the-hood applications.
Our scientists and technicians have created and rigorously tested our leading brands used in industrial protective clothing, including Nomex®, Tychem®, Tyvek® and Kevlar®. Learn more about their roles in industrial safety and worker protection.
DuPont™ Surlyn® for polymer modification is used as a processing aid and compatibilizer in PET. It also is used as a nylon toughener in automotive parts.
