Uses and Applications
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.
Proven performance and durability, excellent resistance to flex fatigue and broad temperature use make DuPont™ Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer the ideal material for flexible boots, bushings and bumpers in chassis suspension components
