DuPont Named Finalist For 2 R&D 100 Awards

BETAMATE 2090 crash-resistant adhesive and Delrin Renewable Attributed POM named finalists in the mechanical/materials category.

DuPont Mobility & Materials announced it has been named a finalist in the annual R&D100 Awards for two of its breakthrough solutions in the mechanical/materials category. The awards are presented by R&D World Magazine.

The two DuPont finalists for 2021 are:

BETAMATE 2090 crash-resistant adhesive, which is used for electric vehicle battery housing assembly to help reduce mass and increase safety. The material bonds the base cooling plate to the battery box structure to help ensure the structural integrity and crash performance of the entire battery compartment through the lifetime of the vehicle. This is achieved through excellent corrosion resistance. Tailor-made curing kinetics enhance a lean and efficient assembly process.

Delrin Renewable Attributed polyoxymethylene (POM) was the first POM certified by the ISCC, according to mass balance principles, to be comprised of 100% bio-feedstock from waste and manufactured using 100% renewable energy. Delrin Renewable Attributed exhibits excellent mechanical properties and enables the design of functional parts with an improved carbon handprint. The product helps enable a world-class environmental impact profile and is on the market for applications in the automotive, industrial, consumer, and electronics industries.

“DuPont’s sustainability goals are aggressive and it’s gratifying to have two important technologies named as R&D 100 finalists that also showcase our commitment,” said Randy Stone, president, DuPont Mobility & Materials. “We continue to grow our portfolio of solutions that support vehicle electrification and products with a reduced footprint. We are proud of the recognition of these efforts through the prestigious R&D 100 Awards.”

In the past eight years, DuPont has been named a finalist 17 times and has been the winner of six R&D 100 Awards. 

The R&D 100 Awards, now in its 59th year, are widely recognized as the “Oscars of Invention,” as they identify and celebrate the top technology products and services of the year. This year, the R&D Awards received entries from 17 different countries/regions and nominations were judged by 50 respected industry professionals across the globe.  The winners will be announced later this year.
