Safety Systems & Interiors

Distinctive Automotive Interiors & Safety Systems

It’s not enough that today’s vehicles be fuel-efficient. Consumers still want vehicles that are safe, comfortable and great to drive. Automakers draw on DuPont materials and expertise to create a special driving experience.

DuPont offers materials for automotive interiors and safety systems that protect drivers and passengers while enhancing the driving experience. DuPont renewably sourced materials give design engineers another way to separate their vehicles from the competition.

Comfort & Design: DuPont high-performance materials are widely used to help reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) for a more pleasant ride and to enable styling features such as 3D LED lighting systems. Additionally, DuPont™ Teflon® fabric protector is used to extend the quality and life of car fabrics.

Safety: From the first airbag system and safety belt mechanisms to the latest collision-avoidance electronic materials and technologies, we continue to set the standard for performance in active and passive safety systems.

Sustainability: Automakers can further differentiate their vehicles and enhance performance by using DuPont™ Renewably Sourced™ polymers in floor mats, headliners, airbag doors, and other interior components to support an eco-friendly theme.
