DuPont's POM to meet the automotive industry's demanding requirements

November 10/2011

(PlastEurope) -- New low-emission Delrin 300TE acetal resin is the first impact-modified POM from DuPont Performance Polymers (Wilmington, Delaware) to meet the automotive industry's demanding requirements for the use of plastics in vehicle interiors, where high resistance to impact load is required, the company says.

Delrin 300TE, which has a melt flow index of 6 g/10min, is considerably more impact resistant than 300PE, a previously launched low-emission grade that also is suitable for use in automotive interiors. It achieves a notched impact strength at 23C of 18 kJ/m2. DuPont said that, in common with its other acetal resins, the material combines high strength, hardness and stiffness over a broad temperature range with high abrasion resistance and a low coefficient of friction, high heat deflection temperature, good electrical and dielectric properties and high dimensional stability.

Perspectives of development of polymer markets, pricing issues and other important aspects will be discussed at The Polymers Summit-2011, which will be held in Moscow on November 30, 2011 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Summit will be organized by MRC with the support of ICIS. The main idea of the Summit is to find a "the golden mean" between producers and converters. When producers receive exactly such margin of production, which helps them to invest in production expansion in order to substitute polymers imports, and the converters receive such price of feedstock that helps them to compete imported finished products. The Summit site gives an access to the live video of the Summit, speakers" presentations, as well as opportunities to ask questions or make appointments to any Summit partcipant.
