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.

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.
Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...
A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter
A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
