Among myriad product offerings, DuPont produces adhesives and related solutions for applications in electric and hybrid vehicles and the automotive aftermarket, along with composite, glass, and rubber-to-substrate bonding. A company contact reports that the company’s 2021 net sales for adhesives, sealants, and related products was $780 million (up from $750 million in 2020).

DuPont finalized its acquisition of Laird Performance Materials in 2021. The manufacturer of electromagnetic shielding and thermal management products was integrated in the Electronics & Industrial division’s Interconnect Solutions (ICS) business.

DuPont announced in early 2022 its intention to divest the majority of its Mobility & Materials segment. The company plans to retain its Auto Adhesives product lines, among others. Closing of the divestment to Celanese is expected around the end of 2022, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

“DuPont is well-positioned to seize market growth opportunities, proposing a variety of innovative adhesive solutions and technologies addressing the need for sustainable advanced mobility solutions without compromising on safety, durability or performance,” says Christophe van Herreweghe, DuPont global strategy and marketing director. “Supporting our focus on sustainable mobility, we are proud to announce the opening of our global automotive electrification Center of Excellence near Zurich, Switzerland, dedicated to advanced solutions for battery thermal management.”
