The Minlon® family of mineral and mineral/glass-reinforced nylon resins offers a unique balance of properties that allows designers to optimize strength and rigidity, while minimizing the effects of warpage. DuPont's experience in the area of mineral-reinforced nylons has led to the development of a wide range of compositions tailored for a variety of demanding applications. Mineral-reinforced resins for automotive wheel covers feature an excellent surface for painting, together with easy flow, fast cycle times and high impact strength.

For under-hood applications such as engine styling covers, where a combination of low warpage and excellent surface finish is required, a range of mineral or mineral/glass-reinforced resins, have been developed. Even for the most demanding under-hood applications, Minlon® grades featuring a specially developed glass and mineral combination and a nylon 6,6 matrix provide the ultimate combination of strength, stiffness and creep resistance at elevated temperatures. Resistance to hot oil and hot air aging, combined with precision molding and low warpage are additional benefits provided by Minlon®.
