DuPont Wins 3 2023 Edison Awards

DuPont Wins 3 2023 Edison Awards

Among the three awards was a Bronze award for its BETASEAL APEX primerless-to-glass automotive aftermarket adhesive system.

DuPont today announced that three of its innovative material technologies were recognized with the prestigious 2023 Edison Awards. Selected from hundreds of nominees, DuPont received two silver awards and one Bronze.

“We’re honored that three of our innovative technologies are helping our customers address their most significant sustainability challenges,” said Alexa Dembek, DuPont chief technology and sustainability officer. “This recognition exemplifies how our teams are driven by a relentless focus on excellence and highlights the spirit of sustainable innovation at DuPont, demonstrating the impact of our close customer collaboration to bring cutting-edge technologies to market.” 

Among the honors, Dupont received bronze recognition for its BETASEAL APEX primerless-to-glass automotive aftermarket adhesive system in the Materials Science category. BETASEAL APEX is an innovative primerless-to-glass adhesive that decreases impact on the environment while returning the vehicle to original specifications, simplifying installation of the replacement windshield, and providing consistent quality and Advances Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor compatibility. The elimination of primers containing organic solvents reduces glass installation steps, processing complexity and emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC). DuPont’s internal calculations show that over 25,000 liters of solvent are no longer emitted into the atmosphere in North America alone by using BETASEAL APEX.  

Established in 1987, The Edison Awards recognize excellence in new product and service development, marketing, design, and innovation. Developed and maintained in the legacy of Thomas Edison, The Edison Awards™ “symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Edison and his Menlo Park team, while also strengthening the human drive for innovation, creativity, and ingenuity.
