DuPont: Plans to Increase AEM Finishing Capacity

DuPont Performance Polymers, Geneva, Switzerland, will increase the polymer finishing capacity of Vamac ethylene/acrylic elastomer by 50% in response to strong and growing demand for use in automotive powertrain applications, such as turbo charger hoses, air ducts, oil cooler hoses, tubing and gaskets.

"The industry’s drive to improve the performance of smaller, more efficient engines to meet fuel economy and emissions regulations is driving up temperatures under the hood," said Patrick Ferronato, global automotive manager for DuPont Performance Polymers. "Vamac is a natural replacement for conventional rubbers due to its excellent heat and oil resistance."

DuPont has invested repeatedly in Vamac for the past 15 years, significantly expanding capacity to meet growing demand primarily in the automotive industry.

The new finishing line will be located in La Porte, Texas, USA, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011 with product available in 2012.
