From material selection to tolerances, the Plastic Design Guide details 10 top tips for effective design, efficient production, and successful products.
DuPont has an understanding of the consumer electronics market gained through experience. This understanding helps DuPont work with designers, manufacturers and OEMs to develop materials for electronic devices that continue to address the challenges that the industry faces.
DuPont was the first company to commercialize a PA1010 polymer for the automotive market. Zytel® RSLC 1610 is a PA1010 specifically formulated to provide better thermal properties and chemical resistance to biodiesel fuel, compared with the materials it replaced.
Ford, Fiat and Toyota walked away with innovation awards at the 2011 Society of Plastics Engineers “Most Innovative Use of Plastics Awards” event for components that use two renewably sourced DuPont materials — DuPont™ Zytel® RS nylon and DuPont™ Sorona® EP polymer — and one component using DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET.
DuPont™ Vespel® parts and shapes and DuPont™ Delrin® acetal resin are high-strength, low-friction mechanical plastics that deliver performance for automotive, consumer, and industrial applications.
