The DuPont offering in terms of advanced material solutions for the global wire & cable industry comes under the spotlight of this issue of DuPont Engineering Design magazine. As illustrated by recent commercializations in the US and Europe, the DuPont portfolio of engineering thermoplastics offers customers the properties and benefits required to give their cabling products that extra competitive edge. Meanwhile, beyond its engineering polymer business, other sectors of DuPont are enhancing their own range of elastomers, fluoropolymers and modifiers to meet the challenges facing today’s wire and cable industry.
