AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- DuPont Transportation & Industrial (DuPont) today announced three innovative products have been named finalists for the 2020 R&D 100 Awards, according to the influential R&D World magazine.

"I am tremendously proud of our teams to be recognized for the relentless pursuit of innovation that continues to be at the core of what we do every day at DuPont," said Scott Collick, vice president, global R&D, DuPont Transportation & Industrial. "Backed by advanced materials science and extensive experience, we collaborate with customers to create innovative and breakthrough solutions that help people thrive and also address the complex challenges facing the world."

The three DuPont finalists for 2020 are:

  • BETAFORCE™ 2800 TC, which enables required heat transfer from electric vehicle (EV) battery modules into cooling units, the structural integrity of the entire battery compartment, and tailor-made curing kinetics for lean and efficient manufacturing processes. The battery design was jointly developed with Audi for mass production of the e-tron®.
  • Delrin® SC698 resin with integrated lubrication can help improve patient comfort and ease of use by ensuring smooth actuation of high-load drug delivery devices like inhalers, injectors, and pumps. Its strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability make it ideal for high-precision parts that are subjected to long-term loading.
  • Zytel® HTN42G30EF, a new 30% glass-fiber reinforced bio-based, high-performance polyamide, which has a novel combination of process and mechanical properties, reflow soldering resistance, and stability against heat with prevention of electro-chemical corrosion. It is used for vehicle systems that provide infotainment, navigation, advanced driver assistance, safety, and internet connectivity.

Widely recognized as the "Oscars of Invention," the R&D 100 Awards identify and celebrate the top technology products and services of the year. The winners of the R&D 100 will be announced in three virtual award presentations next week (September 29October 1, 2020), with each day highlighting R&D 100 winners in different categories.
