The focus of this issue the growing global acceptance of diesel engines within the automotive industry, and the opportunities this trend presents for the adoption of DuPont materials. As you will read on to discover, one of the most recent applications within this field is a highly integrated valve cover for a 4-cylinder diesel engine in the Mercedes C Class, while Viton® fluoroelastomers have been confirmed as highly compatible with biodiesel, making them first choice for fuel system and drivetrain applications.
