DuPont to increase the polymer finishing capacity of Vamac ethylene/acrylic elastomer

October 10/2011

(Plastemart) -- DuPont Performance Polymers, Geneva, Switzerland, has announced that it 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.


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