DuPont Performance Materials (DuPont) has formally expanded its capacity by inaugurating its largest engineering plastics compounding plant located in the Guangming New District, Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.

The site produces a variety of DuPont products, including Zytel® polyamide (PA), Crastin® (PBT), Delrin® acetal (POM) resins, Bynel® adhesive resins, and Fusabond® resins, to primarily serve automotive, industrial and consumer, and packaging markets in both China and the Asia Pacific region.

The new state-of-the-art facility incorporates the latest compounding technologies and features a number of innovations to deliver consistent high quality and increased productivity. Notably, DuPont collaborated closely with the extrusion equipment builder during the research and development phase to create a production setup that allows faster transitions between different product families to provide greater asset flexibility to meet customer needs with shorter delivery cycles.

"This investment reinforces our commitment to meet the growing needs of our customers and will provide increased capacity, greater asset flexibility and speed to respond to demand changes. The technology advancements enable consistent delivery of high quality product and will strengthen our position as a market leader with innovative, high-quality DuPont products produced in a timely and responsive manner," stated Randy Stone, president, DuPont Performance Materials.

Designed with future expansions in mind, this new compounding facility is the largest in DuPont's global manufacturing network. The larger extruders installed deliver a higher volume output with increased efficiency. Furthermore, a greater level of automation from silo to extruder is beneficial for product uniformity and quality. Product packaging also is fully automated at the new facility.

"This is a major investment in DuPont Performance Materials' largest market, China, and in our fastest growing area, Asia. It complements our extended global operations network and demonstrates our commitment to growth in China and Asia Pacific. DuPont started its China growth journey from Shenzhen 27 years ago. We remain committed to participating and contributing to China’s drive for sustainable development, leveraging DuPont’s scientific innovation capabilities," said Tony Su, president, DuPont Asia Pacific.

DuPont Performance Materials (DPM) is a leading innovator of thermoplastics, elastomers, renewably sourced polymers, high-performance parts and shapes, as well as resins that act as adhesives, sealants, and modifiers. DPM supports a globally linked network of regional application development experts who work with customers throughout the value chain to develop innovative solutions in automotive, packaging, construction, consumer goods, electrical/electronics and other industries.
