DuPont™ Vamac® ethylene acrylic elastomer products thrive in harsh environments, performing in turbocharger hoses, oil cooler hoses, seals and gaskets. Vamac® elastomers can be fashioned into cured compounds with superb low-temperature resistance, high-temperature durability, and resistance to auto fluids, such as transmission fluid and engine oils.
Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts (FFKM) resist over 1,800 different chemicals and withstand temperatures up to 327ºC. This elastomer is widely used in demanding chemical processing and semiconductor manufacturing, as well as pharmaceutical, aerospace and oil & gas applications.
DuPont™ Kapton® polyimide films make innovative design solutions possible for a broad swath of automotive and other industrial applications, including photovoltaic and wind energy, aerospace, and consumer electronics.
Best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armor, Kevlar® brand aramid fiber is credited with helping to save thousands of lives. Lightweight and extraordinarily strong, it’s used to make a variety of clothing, accessories, and equipment safer, more cut resistant and durable.
Whenever thermal protection is needed, only one fiber comes to mind — Nomex®. For over 40 years, workers across industries have relied on the inherently flame-resistant properties of Nomex® to help keep them safe from the hazards they face on the job.
Nomex® paper and pressboard have earned a reputation for delivering superior quality and proven reliability for a wide range of electrical insulation applications, meeting the ever-increasing demands of a changing world.
DuPont™ ProShield® 6 SFR Garments protective apparel can help extend the life of the flame resistant garments you depend upon.
DuPont engineered ProShield® apparel helps provides protection against non-hazardous exposures. Learn how affordable and practical ProShield® garments can be used to help protect against non-hazardous dry particle and light liquid splash applications.
To provide electricians, utility workers, and other industrial workers with inherently flame-resistant garments for protection against electric arc flash, DuPont engineered Protera® is NFPA 70E–Compliant.
DuPont’s commitment to safety stands at 6’1” and is covered with 122 heat sensors. Thermo-Man® is one of the most advanced thermal burn injury evaluation devices in the world and helps DuPont test the performance of flame-resistant garments.
Tyvek® Air and Water Barriers for commercial construction help create a tight building envelope, to keep air and water out and reduce the energy needed to heat and cool buildings.
Workers who deal with hazardous materials need confidence in their protective apparel. Tyvek® fabric used in Tyvek® protective apparel is engineered to resist particles down to 1 micron in size including particles such as lead, asbestos, and mold.
Vespel® parts and shapes are custom-made based on application need - offering sealing capabilities as well as protection against wear, friction and high temperatures.
DuPont™ Zytel® nylon resin provides a comprehensive family of performance grades and properties that range from toughness and stiffness to thermal and chemical resistance.
Zytel® nylon resin is the most versatile of plastics - easy to process, easy to modify, and environmentally responsible in production and in reuse. It's tough, light and surprisingly resilient in hot, chemically aggressive and humid environments. DuPont™ Zytel® HTN high-performance polyamide bridges the performance gap between conventional engineering resins and high-end specialty polymers.
