DuPont Demonstrates Solutions for the Hydrogen Value Chain at FCVC 2024

DuPont™ MOLYKOTE® Specialty Lubricants brand is celebrating 75 years



Shanghai, China, June 4, 2024 – DuPont (NYSE:DD) will participate at the International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Vehicle Congress & Exhibition 2024 (FCVC 2024), June 4th to 6th, Jiading, Shanghai.  Organized by the China Society of Automotive Engineers (China SAE) and the International Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association (IHFCA), the event aims to promote the integration and development of hydrogen energy and fuel cell vehicle technology, fostering mutual benefits for the industry.

DuPont will showcase its latest innovations at Booth No. B05 with its Vespel® parts and shapes and MOLYKOTE® specialty lubricants product lines, and how they help overcome challenges in various hydrogen (H2) applications. The widespread adoption of hydrogen as an alternative energy source has brought about a new set of requirements that differ from those of fossil fuels. The design of safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly processes for the production, conversion, transportation, and supply of hydrogen is critical.

"The exceptional and proven performance of Vespel® polyimide parts and MOLYKOTE® specialty lubricants from DuPont have been essential for our offering in the emerging hydrogen market. At the show, we look forward to discussing opportunities to collaborate with our customers for a low-carbon hydrogen future," said Zhang Xin, DuPont APAC business leader, MOLYKOTE® & Vespel®.

Vespel® parts and shapes are the answer to the most stringent sealing requirements in hydrogen applications, thanks to their unique blend of thermal, mechanical, and tribological properties.  Vespel® features a low and consistent compressive modulus and high mechanical resistance, providing exceptional sealing across a variety of typical H2 conditions. Vespel ® parts and shapes have been chosen by hydrogen customers to make all kinds of valve seats and seals, actuator bushings, back up rings, piston & packing rings, labyrinth seals, and stem packings under harsh conditions. 

The DuPont team will also highlight some applications of MOLYKOTE® Specialty lubricant in hydrogen industry at the exhibition. MOLYKOTE® HP-300 Grease is ideal to lubricate seals of valves used along hydrogen pipes, as its lubrication capability and inertness against hydrogen reduce the risk of leakages caused by improper manufacturing or assembly. The high wearing resistance and low COF features of MOLYKOTE® Anti-Friction Coating supports air foil bearings of fuel cell electric air turbo compressor to achieve extremely high speed but also high reliability and durability due to extremely low frictional losses during the start-stop cycles.
