Biesterfeld Plastic and DuPont Transportation & Industrial (T&I) are proud to celebrate more than 30 years of exclusive collaboration in the field of engineering polymers and high-performance materials. The two companies are looking forward to continuing their successful partnership, which now extends to much of the EMEA region and Brazil.
Engineering polymers are a core element in the product portfolio and will continue to gain in importance in the future. DuPont T&I offers a comprehensive and diversified portfolio of High Performance Nylons which includes the Zytel® HTN portfolio of high-performance polyamides. Solutions enabled by Zytel® HTN range from critical healthcare applications helping to reduce friction and wear in medical devices, to structural components for transportation. In addition, the specially developed Zytel® type RSHTN59G55LWSF BK083 offers an outstanding combination of low warpage and rigidity allowing complex part geometry, especially in the case of critical components. Specific grades of Zytel® based on renewable materials are also available, reinforcing our commitment to renewably-sourced polymers, and which will continue to be a focus for both companies going forward.
"We are constantly faced with changes in the market and new challenges," says Martin Rathke, Product Manager at Biesterfeld Plastic. "Thanks to our close collaboration with DuPont, we are regularly able to offer our customers product innovations for a wide range of applications and can thus always respond to customer-specific requests. Technology-based consulting and project support together with the manufacturer are of central importance to us. Thanks to our many years of flourishing collaboration, we are perfectly positioned in this area.”
