DuPont proudly partners with the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg
CONTERN, Luxembourg, June 4, 2019 – With a longtime experience in high performance materials used in sports and leisure, DuPont has taken on a new challenge in Luxembourg: the partnership with the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg.
During the 2019 edition of the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg, DuPont will feature high-performance materials such as DuPont™ Kevlar®, DuPont™ Nomex® and DuPont™ Tyvek®, widely used in a broad variety of sports, ranging from Formula One racing and motorsports, to skiing, tennis and cycling.
As an example, all riders will carry a racing number of Tyvek® made in Luxembourg. This material offers a unique combination of benefits for outdoor performance, such as tear-resistance, lightweight, water resistance, breathability and printability.
Visitors of the VIP area will carry wristbands made of Tyvek®. DuPont’s Kevlar®, Typar® and Tyvek® brands will be visible through large banners in the start and finish line areas. “DuPont is dedicated to increase the awareness around the unique value contribution of its products to the sport industry”, says Marnick Dewilde, Global Growth Enablement Leader, DuPont Safety, “and to build new partnerships to continuously offer user friendly, innovative and sustainable solutions.”
Construction of a new production line for Tyvek® non-woven materials in Luxembourg is progressing according to plan. DuPont invests 340 million euro in this third Tyvek® production line at the Contern site, which is planned to become operational in 2021.
The Skoda Tour du Luxembourg will take place from June 5 to June 9, starting with a prologue June 5 in the streets of Luxembourg city center. Stages will be Luxembourg-Bascharage on June 6th, Steinfort-Rosport on June 7th, Mondorf-Diekirch on June 8th and Mersch-Luxembourg on June 9th.
