DuPont science helps solve vehicle design challenges.
Vehicle Design and Comfort
Automotive customers demand aesthetically-pleasing vehicle design, but they are also just as adamant about their comfort. DuPont science is helping to make today’s vehicles more beautiful and more comfortable, with technologies that give automotive engineers and designers the freedom to realize their vehicle design visions without compromising on comfort.
Nothing conveys luxury like the pristine hush of a quality auto interior. DuPont vehicle design technologies designed to reduce noise and vibration help make contemporary interiors seem warm and inviting. DuPont™ Krytox® performance lubricants deliver lifetime elimination of interior and exterior squeaks and rattles. Krytox® lubricants are non-toxic, non-migrating, odorless, silicone-free and compatible with all common automotive materials, including elastomers and polymers.
Meanwhile, DuPont textile protection technologies are making automotive fabrics more vibrant, longer-lasting, and more pleasant to the touch. Fabrics treated with DuPont™ Teflon® fabric protector fend off unsightly splashes and spots. Designers are deploying Teflon® fabric protector across a range of vehicle design applications, including seats, roof linters, curtains and decorative elements. And innovative refrigerants, like DuPont™ Opteon™, offer the optimal balance of performance, environmental sustainability, safety and cost for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. Opteon™ yf refrigerant has been accepted for use in mobile air conditioning by leading automotive OEMs
Bold New LED Lighting Possibilities
DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials deliver high-performance, flexible substrates, enabling stylish 3-D LED lighting systems for daytime running lights, turn lights, high/low beams and rear lights. DuPont™ CooLam™ thermal substrates, featuring outstanding heat dissipation and thermal cycling performance, let engineers enhance vehicle design with lighter, thinner LED systems by reducing the need for cumbersome, heavy heat sinks.
