The science of material selection is essential to luxury goods. DuPont™ Surlyn® offers a unique combination of glass-like clarity, functional performance, appealing surfaces, a luxurious feel, and ease of production. That's why the material continues to find recognition among leading cosmetics brands such as Versace.

The brilliant, massive closure of Versace's new Bright Crystal perfume, made of DuPont™ Surlyn®, matches its contents perfectly. Shaped like a giant, multi-faceted diamond, the molded cap is as captivating and voluptuous as the fragrance inside.

The closure was originally designed in glass, but the molder G. Candiani srl, together with the fragrance's creator, Euroitalia srl., decided to look for alternatives due to quality and cost considerations. The company found that DuPont™ Surlyn® PC2000 provides a cost-effective solution.

The clarity of Surlyn® was essential for the application. Beyond this, the material provided scratch- and abrasion-resistance, stiffness and chemical resistance, and easy processing. According to Prosper Zuffery, technical and processing expert at DuPont, "With Surlyn® PC2000, molders can produce thick to very thick parts of complex shape, and a glossy-smooth, perfectly flat surface without defects."
