According to DuPont Performance Polymers, its new low-emission Delrin 300TE acetal resin (POM) is suitable for use in interior application where high resistance to impact loads is required. For example, according to Hans-Hermann Kirner, material development manager for automotive interiors at DuPont, “Thanks to its high-melt flow, thin-walled parts with long flow paths—for instance, the struts used in headrests—are among the principal areas for developments in Delrin 300TE.”
 
The low-emissions characteristic is important for interior applications. Kirner: “Tests of samples of the new impact-modified Delrin 300TE, conducted by the renowned Fresenius Institute in Herten, Germany, revealed formaldehyde emissions of 1.0 mg/m2 and lower. Such results are considerably below the limit of 2.0 mg/m2 set by leading German OEMs and mean that the new material meets the world’s most stringent requirements with regard to VOC emissions in this sector.”
