DuPont: A Chemical Powerhouse

E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, or DuPont, is an enormous American company, headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware. With $35.7 billion in revenue for fiscal year 2013 and approximately 70,000 employees, DuPont is the third largest chemical company in the world manufacturing with seven primary business segments: agriculture (32% of sales), performance chemicals (19%), performance materials (18%), safety & protection (11%), nutrition & health (10%), industrial biosciences (3%), and electronics & communications (7%).

DuPont’s engineering polymers are an important component for electronic and electrical connectors. DuPont™ Zytel® and DuPont™ Crastin® polymers are used in applications including backplane, optical, SIM, and PCB connectors. Zytel comes in a number of types designed for a specific requirement including: the original DuPont Zytel, the Zytel PA66 FR (a flame retardant copolymer/stabilizer combination with both halogenated and non-halogen types), and the DuPont Zytel HTN high-performance polyamide (a resin with high temperature tolerance with grades HTN 51, HTN 52, HTN 54, HTN 92 that offer a varying level of melting points, stiffness, and molding capabilities). The HTN is able to contain electronic connectors, relays, light-emitting diode components, and other electrical parts. DuPont’s Crastin PBT thermoplastic polyester resins are modifiable with characteristics including flame retardation, glass-reinforcement, and hydrolysis resistance. Crastin’s different grades offer variable stiffness, toughness, heat resistance, friction and wear resistance, surface finishes, electrical insulation arc-resistance, and colorability.
