GENEVA—DuPont Co. has launched Delrin 100CPE NC010, offering a new resin for the automotive sector and non-automotive gear applications.
The firm said Delrin 100 was the resin of choice for major OEMs and Tier 1s in high performance gears and particularly in automotive actuators for 60 years. Now, with the launch of this new grade, DuPont can provide its customers with superior environmental performance.
In collaboration with a major industry partner, DuPont said it developed and is implementing the new grade in large scale commercial production. Delrin 100CPE NC010 is the result of what it described as a "fruitful and longstanding collaboration," out of which was created a new, low-emission resin that outperforms high viscosity polyacetal resins.
The thermal properties and high-temperature tensile creep performance of Delrin 100CPE NC010 are comparable with the state of the art product. DuPont added that when it comes to low-emission and molding productivity performance, Delrin 100CPE NC010 exceeds all expectations.
One of the key benefits of Delrin 100CPE NC010 is its level of formaldehyde emissions, which is below 2 ppm according to the VDA 275 testing method. DuPont said this allows compliance with current and future toughest emissions industry norms.
