Stylish utensils withstand heavy use, thanks to DuPont Engineering Plastics

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 18 February, 2002  (New Product)
Two DuPont engineering polymers help provide sales appeal and value in use for a set of kitchen utensils from Essen Aluminio S.A. The utensils have white handles molded from DuPont Delrin acetal resin and black working pieces molded from DuPont Zytel nylon resin. The black parts have integral shafts which are press-fitted into the white handles. The handle for the tongs is a U-shaped component that flexes repeatedly during use. Delrin 100ST, a super tough grade, meets needs for exceptional flex crack resistance and resiliency in these parts. Handles for the other utensils are made from the same grade to facilitate color matching.

The utensils have white handles molded from DuPont Delrin acetal resin and black working pieces molded from DuPont Zytel nylon resin. The black parts have integral shafts which are press-fitted into the white handles.

The handle for the tongs is a U-shaped component that flexes repeatedly during use. Delrin 100ST, a super tough grade, meets needs for exceptional flex crack resistance and resiliency in these parts. Handles for the other utensils are made from the same grade to facilitate color matching.

The black parts of the utensils are molded from a glass-reinforced nylon resin in the Zytel 74G series. It delivers the required combination of excellent surface appearance plus high-temperature resistance, strength, stiffness and toughness.
