Effective July 1, DuPont Dow Elastomers, will be known as DuPont Performance Elastomers, but will stay under the leadership of its current CEO, Jack Lewis.
DuPont Performance Elastomers will continue to produce DuPont Dow’s Viton fluoroelastomers, Viton FreeFlow, Kalrez perfluoroelastomer parts, Neoprene synthetic rubber, Hypalon chlorosulfonated polyethylene and Vertex seal technology.
However, DuPont Dow’s Engage polyolefin elastomers, Nordel hydrocarbon and Tyrin cholorinated polyethylene will become part of Dow’s Specialty Plastics and Elastomers business unit.
