DuPont Engineering Polymers expands high performance polyamide capacity to meet market demand

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 21 October, 2003  (Company News)
DuPont Engineering Polymers will meet increasing demand for DuPont
“The expansion will more than double our base polymer capacity for DuPont™ Zytel® HTN,” said Clive Robertson, global business manager for the material. “This move supports and enables ongoing development of expanding global markets for Zytel® HTN in components for automotive, electrical/electronic and various other consumer and industrial products.” Among its many applications are automotive fuel valves and coolant system components, multi-pin electronic connectors for surface-mount circuit assembly, parts for consumer electronic devices, oven fans, manifolds for water heaters and power transformer components.

With double-digit growth rates, high performance polyamides are among the fastest growing engineering plastics. “Zytel® HTN expands the frontier for replacement of metal and thermosets. It combines outstanding moulding productivity with excellent strength, stiffness, toughness and dimensional stability at typical ambient conditions and in demanding environments involving elevated temperatures, moisture, and aggressive chemicals,” Robertson said. “Most Zytel® HTN resins fall within the narrower family of polyamides known to some as PPA (polyphthalamide) resins, within which they offer perhaps the best combination of highest performance and easiest processing.”
