DuPont Focused on Meeting Global Demands for Greater Safety & Protection

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DuPont Group Vice President Mark P. Vergnano told investment analysts at the Bank of America Securities 37th Annual Investor Conference today that the Safety & Protection business segment is focused on meeting growing global demands for products and services that protect lives, structures, critical processes and the environment.

"DuPont is uniquely positioned to deliver innovations for safety and security at home, at work and in the world around us," Vergnano said. "We have broadened the definition of our addressable markets and are advancing a rich pipeline of science-based solutions for those markets. The business opportunities for DuPont in this segment are exceptional."

DuPont Safety & Protection is focused on four key value propositions that guide its priorities for innovation and investment:

including biosecurity, with products that include protective apparel,

materials and equipment for soldiers, law enforcement personnel and

emergency responders.

-- Safe and durable buildings - Delivering innovative building solutions

that integrate safety, durability, beauty and energy efficiency in

commercial and residential construction.

-- Protecting critical processes - Providing offerings that improve

critical performance systems; mitigate and detect microbial

contamination in food and biotechnology operations; and employ

filtration technologies that reduce contamination in refinery and

semiconductor markets.

-- Protecting the environment - Delivering technologies and services that

provide cleaner air, fuel and water for industry.

"We are leveraging our globally recognized branded products -- DuPont(TM) Kevlar(R), Nomex(R) and Tyvek(R) -- around the world, while accelerating the introduction of new products that protect lives and property," Vergnano said.

This year's new product launches include Protera(R) protective clothing, Kevlar(R) New Fiber Technology, Tyvek(R) Silver, Energain(R) mass storage materials, avian influenza biosecurity kits and Hybrid Membrane Technology for filtration applications.
