New PTFE Facility Will Support Growth in Global Markets

CHANGSHU CITY, China, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A new DuPont (NYSE: DD) fluoropolymer production plant has begun operations here. The plant, which produces polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fine-powder and dispersion for global customers, with focus on Asia Pacific, marks a significant milestone in the company's strategic plan to establish a broader fluoroproducts manufacturing base in China.

"DuPont's advanced, high-quality PTFE products already have established a leading position in the market and are delivering benefits to our customers around the world."
