Uses and Applications
Superior resistance to aggressive chemicals and extreme temperatures, great surface appearance and low cost of processing make the DuPont™ Zytel® family the ideal material for sealed and unsealed engine and driveline covers and housings.
Air ducts and turbocharger hoses operate in hot and stressful environments that involve pressure, engine oil and blow-by-gases. These conditions can induce rapid heat aging and compromise the performance in all but the highest performing plastic and rubber materials.
DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® fibres bring together flame and temperature resistance, strength, reinforcement, and other properties that can help improve hoses, tyres, belts, filters and other automotive components.
Vamac® and Viton® are used in automotive connectors made for high heat and harsh chemical underhood applications.
DuPont™ Kevlar® and DuPont™ Nomex® brand fibres help improve the safety, performance, and durability of automotive components such as automotive hoses for a wide variety of vehicles, from passenger cars and trucks to professional racecars.
With its high modulus and abrasion resistance, Kevlar® fiber helps auto belts retain their original shape and tension over the lifespan of a vehicle.
