Today’s smarter, more comfortable cars are enabled by electronics. The number and level of sophistication of electronic systems in vehicles continues to increase, along with the need for materials that deliver high performance and cost-effective solutions to automotive OEMs and end users alike. DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) has developed a range of materials for automotive powertrain systems, safety and comfort, engineered to withstand extreme temperatures, high-impact, vibration and attack by corrosive fluids. These materials are designed to deliver consistent, superior performance over long vehicle lifetimes. Examples include:
Self-limiting seat heaters are a key emerging technology that employ high conductivity polymer thick film silver and carbon pastes that help ensure consistent, even seat heating in a simpler, more cost-effective system that eliminates the need for temperature sensors and controllers by design.
