The high performance polymer from DuPont was selected by Spanish appliance manufacturer Taurus for the pitcher lid, pitcher support and insulating ring of the appliance due to its food compliance and long-term temperature resistance.
DuPont™ Zytel® HTN was selected by Spanish appliance manufacturer Taurus for the pitcher lid, pitcher support and insulating ring of its new Mycook food processor due to its food compliance and long-term temperature resistance.
When designing the three parts moulded in the high-performance polymer from DuPont, Taurus’ primary objectives were for the components to be cold-to-the-touch – of particular importance for the pitcher lid – lightweight and robust, while combining an attractive appearance with design freedom. The particular grade of Zytel® HTN selected by Taurus retains its mechanical properties such as strength, stiffness and toughness when exposed to heat and moisture over a multitude of cycles, involving temperatures of up to 200 °C and is approved for use in food applications.
The associated benefits for the consumer include the facilitated handling of the pitcher – due to its reduced weight – as well as the reduced risk of breakage or scolding for the user, thanks to the material’s heat insulation performance. The attractive polymer components are also easy-to-clean.
The Mycook food processor is one of the first multi-purpose food processors to use induction technology to cook food – helping reduce cooking time by providing rapid and uniform heating of the ingredients. As preparation and cooking time are minimal, the food retains its maximum of nutrients. The technology is also safe and environmentally-friendly, due to the reduction in electricity consumption.
The DuPont Engineering Polymers business manufactures and sells Crastin® PBT and Rynite® PET thermoplastic polyester resins, Delrin® acetal resins, Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomers, DuPont™ ETPV engineering thermoplastic vulcanizates, Minlon® mineral reinforced nylon resins, Thermx® PCT polycyclohexylene dimethyl terephthalate, Tynex® filaments, Vespel® parts and shapes, Zenite® LCP liquid crystal polymers, Zytel® nylon resins and Zytel® HTN high-performance polyamides. These products serve global markets in the aerospace, appliance, automotive, consumer, electrical, electronic, healthcare, industrial, sporting goods and many other diversified industries.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
