The BMW Sauber F1 Team has a new Promotional Supplier: DuPont, based in Wilmington (Delaware, USA) and with its European headquarters in Geneva, will supply the team with innovative paints and coatings for its racing cars as well as trucks and motor homes.

When it comes to Formula One cars, paint finishes and coatings are of particular relevance. Important criteria are low weight combined with optimum thickness, thermal stability, resistance to mechanical stresses such as stone chips, and colour brilliance suitable for television broadcasts.

BMW and DuPont already cooperate in the aftermarket sector for series- production vehicles and this will strengthen their future cooperation. DuPont is a science company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere.

Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture, nutrition, electronics, communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel.

DuPont invests over a billion US dollars annually into research and development for its various business segments (Coatings & Color Technologies, Safety & Protection, Electronic & Communication Technologies, Performance Materials and Agriculture & Nutrition).
