A Strong Legacy in Fiber Technology

A Strong Legacy in Fiber Technology

Since the early 1900's, DuPont has been a world leader in polymer and fiber technology. DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced fiber is the latest innovation that delivers environmental benefits without sacrificing performance.

Engine Efficiency for Lower CO2

Engine Efficiency for Lower CO2

DuPont is working with automakers to develop materials that help optimize engine efficiency. Focus areas include heat and friction management, exhaust gas recirculation, and re-imagining turbocharger technology or injection systems for mainstream vehicle production.

High Performance Materials

High Performance Materials

Many of today’s vehicle system environments are like a pressure cooker of aggressive chemicals. Very few materials have the right combination of characteristics to withstand that kind of severe treatment. DuPont is at the forefront of the development of the latest generation of high performance materials.

Vehicle Weight Reduction

Vehicle Weight Reduction

Vehicle weight reduction is a major challenge. While plastics are inherently lighter than metals, lightweighting requires more than direct material substitution. DuPont predictive engineering and design teams work with customers, using insight and high-performance DuPont materials to redesign for lower weight, often integrating functions to cut costs at the same time.

Alternative Drive Vehicles

Alternative Drive Vehicles

As alternative drive vehicles evolve, the challenges only multiply. DuPont is working with automotive manufacturers to help them improve efficiency and range in today’s hybrid and electric vehicles, and further the development of the fuel-cell powered vehicles of tomorrow.

Vehicle Safety Solutions

Vehicle Safety Solutions

DuPont vehicle safety solutions help increase safety across the whole automotive value chain, from employee safety on the production floor to driver and passenger safety on the road.
