DuPont Introduces Polymer Advisor Tool

The Polymer Advisor can be used on smart phones, tablets or laptops to help users select thermoplastic materials (figure: DuPont)

DuPont Performance Polymers has developed an online Polymer Advisor Tool to support plastics professionals in narrowing the choice of which high-performance thermoplastic family to consider when designing a new component or system.

The tool allows users to select from up to 10 critical performance properties, including temperature performance, stiffness, flexibility, conductivity, hydrolysis resistance, wear and friction. Based on performance requirements, the tool evaluates and ranks 13 DuPont thermoplastic families from which to choose, including DuPont Zytel nylon, DuPont Hytrel TPC/ET and DuPont Vespel parts and shapes.

“Selecting a material is a critical part of the application development process,” said DuPont Senior Technical Consultant Dan Saunders, one of the experts that helped shape the tool. “Material performance and design attributes are best considered early in the design stage so design engineers can take full advantage of the benefits of using a thermoplastic material.”

The Polymer Advisor helps material specifiers get closer to a good starting point prior to discussions with DuPont technical and development experts or reviewing technical data in the DuPont Product Profiler.
