Helping the Automotive Aftermarket Increase Efficiency
DuPont develops industry-leading refinishing systems and color tools, auto refrigerants, and safety products and training solutions to help body shops and service professionals increase efficiency and improve their bottom lines.
We offer the automotive aftermarket industry-leading products, training, and consulting services to help the aftermarket save time and better serve customers.
Comfort and Design: As the leader in automotive refinishing paint products, we developed color formula search software that includes more than 60,000 colors. Our proprietary system lets auto body shops quickly find the most accurate color match, even for complicated metallic colors. Our 70 training centers worldwide offer a range of programs to help workers improve their skills.
To increase cabin comfort, DuPont™ Suva® 134a and next-generation DuPont™ Opteon™ yf auto refrigerants deliver high-quality cooling.
Total System Cost: DuPont waterborne coating technology streamlines the refinishing process, allowing auto body shops to apply a single coat instead of three and reduce emissions. This provides savings without sacrificing quality.
Safety: For auto body shop workers, our cost-effective personal protection, including gloves and apparel, helps reduce injuries and provide protection from heat and flames.
INFORMATION & IDEAS
The auto industry’s current materials portfolio will need to be augmented to meet new 2025 fuel economy standards, according to a recent WardsAuto and DuPont Automotive survey in July of 2011. Respondents also said materials used in power train vehicle systems will change the most.
DuPont™ Krytox® performance lubricants are nonflammable, chemically inert oils and greases that offer thermal stability for automotive and industrial applications, including bearings, seals, and gaskets.
DuPont™ Suva® refrigerants provide a range of cooling solutions for multiple industries, including many options for residential, retail and commercial air-conditioning and refrigeration, everything from supermarket display cases and restaurant walk-ins to the mini-fridges in college dorms.
The DuPont answer to the challenge of creating more sustainable refrigerants, DuPont™ Opteon™ family of lower-global-warming- potential (GWP) refrigerants constitutes a more sustainable refrigeration solution that is energy-efficient, safe and easy-to-implement.
DuPont refrigeration innovation provides the opportunity to retrofit existing CFC and HCFC cooling units to work with the non-ozone-depleting DuPont™ ISCEON® family of refrigerants for a cost-effective upgrade to a more sustainable solution.
