DuPont launches new products to serve auto industry

By Tim Wright

Published June 30, 2009

DuPont's Coatings & Color Technologies (C&CT) business unit serves one of today's most dynamic and volatile industries—the automotive segment. In the last year, auto companies have seen dynamic changes with revenue and earnings shortfalls for even the strongest global automakers.

According to DuPont, automakers are looking for new innovations, including lighter-weight materials, alternative energy options and colors that are made using the best environmental standards available today. The same is true for the automotive aftermarket, where DuPont is the world's leading supplier of coatings for the collision repair industry.

"In this platform, every innovation is market-back," said Lewis Manring, C&CT technology director. "Our customers, including the automotive industry, continue to change and evolve, and we continue to evolve our technologies to best serve them."

Included in their portfolio of new products, the C&CT platform launched two new product lines recently—DuPont Alesta AP Anodic line and a new group of products that meet the California Suggested Control Measure (SCM) standard that requires coatings to comply with new standards of environmental performance. Both lines have lower volatile organic compounds (VOC).
