Use of DuPont

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 20 October, 2004  (Company News)
ElringKlinger Kunststofftechnik GmbH of Heidenheim, Germany, has developed new technology for applying porous DuPont
Trademarked ZenithPolymer®1,the company’s new diffuse reflective material overcomes the inherent reflectivity decay and energy cost problems of conventional systems, maintaining initial reflectivity over time to ensure higher quality of the measured results.

This new application of Teflon® PTFE in light measurement technology won second prize for ElringKlinger Kunststofftechnik GmbH in the European section of the global DuPont Plunkett Awards 2004 competition for innovation with Teflon® and DuPont™ Tefzel® fluoropolymer resins. This was the ninth competition in the series established in 1988 to mark the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Teflon® PTFE fluoropolymer resin by DuPont scientist Dr. Roy J. Plunkett.

According to ElringKlinger, the temperature stability of ZenithPolymer®1 is significantly better than existing techniques, yielding extended part life cycles, lower life cycle costs and reduced cost of ownership. As a result, maintenance costs can be reduced, with industrial waste saving and the non-flammability of PTFE being further benefits. The company anticipates rapid volume growth in a broad range of applications from niche markets to consumer goods segments such as projection screens.

ElringKlinger Kunststofftechnik GmbH, a subsidiary of ElringKlinger AG, specializes in the design and manufacture of seals— including O-rings, radial shaft seals, packings and piston seals, and engineering parts — such as bellows, hoses, diaphragms, heating elements and rotary slide valves, for chemical process, food industry, medical and general engineering applications. Principal materials used are PTFE, PTFE compounds and plastics.
