Expanding its integrated science capabilities at the DuPont Knowledge Center in Hyderabad, India, DuPont opened an Application Development Center focused on integrating advanced material science with other scientific disciplines for the automotive industry, enabling solutions for light-weighting, engine performance, comfort and safety.

These capabilities also are relevant to other industries such as railways, electrical / electronic components, food processing, agriculture, irrigation, textile and many more. At the Application Development Center, DuPont’s integrated science brings value-added solutions to customers in these industries enabling better, safer and sustainable products for consumers.

“The integration of scientific disciplines in advanced materials, such as high-performance polymers and elastomers, are critical to developing cost-effective and sustainable solutions to some of the big challenges that our company is focusing on, for example, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels,” said DuPont Performance Polymers President Diane H. Gulyas. “Materials are only part of the story. The application development process is how we work with customers to get ideas into the market cost effectively. It is the engine of innovation for the polymers business and centers such as this new one in India help customers innovate and find more sustainable solutions in collaboration with DuPont scientists and engineers”.

“This latest expansion at the DuPont Knowledge Center reflects our strong commitment to deliver integrated science-powered solutions and innovations that meet market needs, in collaborations with our local customers and partners. This new facility is part of the global DuPont community of 10,000 scientists and engineers around the world, thus connecting our global science capability to local market needs. I am confident this will enhance our ability to serve customers in India and South Asia,” said Rajeev A. Vaidya, president – South Asia & ASEAN, DuPont.

The new Application Development Center at the DuPont Knowledge Center (DKC) houses thermoplastic and elastomer processing and testing equipment and leverages existing analytic equipment shared with several DuPont science disciplines. It complements the manufacturing facilities in Savli, Gujarat, and the DuPont India Innovation Center in Pune.

It expands their capabilities to support predictive engineering, including computer-aided engineering (CAE), 3D surface computer-aided design (CAD), mold-flow, warpage, structural, impact and NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) analysis.

By connecting with DuPont scientists and engineers at key automotive-based laboratory sites in the United States and Europe, this new center can build on the current predictive engineering power of CAE capabilities with speed-to-market excellence to advance the growing market in India.
