High-Performance Thermoplastic Tubing and Elastomeric Hose
DuPont materials are durable, flexible and resistant to heat and chemicals for high performance hose and tubing uses.
DuPont materials are used in thermoplastic tubing and elastomeric hose for a wide range of automotive, oil and gas and industrial applications.
DuPont recently introduced new technology to enhance flexibility, stress crack resistance and chemical resistance, with long chain polyamides suitable for auto and industrial applications.
This technology can help support next-generation performance demands for the automotive industry:
- Higher-temperature solutions.
- Improved functional integration.
- Weight savings.
- Enhanced chemical resistance.
- Lower-cost system solutions.
- Renewably Sourced Polymers.
