Mazda SKYACTIV-D boosted by DuPont plastics

Mazda’s new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine for the Mazda CX-5 achieves 20% better fuel efficiency, thanks in part to a new two-stage turbocharger with lighter, more cost-effective hoses and air ducts of DuPont™ Viton® fluoroelastomer, DuPont™ Vamac® ethylene acrylic elastomer, and DuPont™ Zytel® HTN polyamide.




50% lighter: Cummins Fleetguard® oil and fuel filters

DuPont™ Zytel® polyamide offers lighter weight with high burst strength and impact, temperature and chemical resist.
