An innovative composite bonding adhesive from DuPont earned silver honours at the 2019 Edison Awards celebration in New York City last week.

The Edison Awards, named after Thomas Alva Edison, recognise and honour the world’s best innovators and innovations.

Developed with a team at Audi, BETAFORCE 9050M composite bonding adhesive for automotive mass production and multi-material substrates enables significant weight reduction and improves torsional stiffness of the vehicle. These innovative characteristics result in better fuel efficiency, safety, handling, comfort and carbon dioxide reduction. Good handling strength after short curing times enables short tack times which significantly improve manufacturing productivity.

“We are honoured to be recognised by the Edison Awards judges for this innovative solution,” said Scott Collick, Global Research and Development Director, DuPont Transportation & Advanced Polymers. “BETAFORCE 9050M provides economic benefits for our customers by enabling lightweight substrates like carbon fiber to be incorporated more widely into vehicles. This then helps OEMs meet and exceed regulations. The improved fuel economy also benefits consumers.”
