DuPont's best-selling material for the automotive sector is nylon, which is used to manufacture different components, such as the case for the radiator fan, engine covers, among others.
DuPont started last year with the commercialization of an elastomer called Vamac, which offers more resistance to fluids like oil, gases, chemical products and high temperatures.
Mr. Zaragoza estimates there will be growth in the automotive and auto parts production during 2017, as there are currently over 1,700 components manufacturers and new providers keep coming.
