DuPont Russian Coatings LLC has opened the largest technical center in Russia dedicated to the development of high-performance automotive coatings.

The $3 million facility is located at the Yaroslav headquarters of DuPont Russian Coatings, a joint venture established in 2006 by DuPont (NYSE: DD) and Russkie-Kraski to supply coatings to manufacturers of automobiles and commercial vehicles in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

The new research and development center's primary focus is adapting the

technical properties of new coatings materials to the line conditions at

new car manufacturers' plants and at the operations of plastic parts

makers. Because of the lab's close proximity, the 15 DuPont Russian

Coatings scientists staffing the new center will be better able to

anticipate and respond to the needs of the fast-growing Russian auto

industry.

"This technical center is a dramatic example of our drive to 'go where

the growth is' by offering world class technology to our customers anywhere

in the world," said BC Chong, vice president and general manager of DuPont

OEM Automotive Coatings. "Russian automakers can now enjoy the cost

advantages of using locally produced coatings systems that are fine-tuned

to real-world manufacturing conditions."

repair industry, DuPont offers color matching tools, engineering polymers

for "lightweighting" vehicles by replacing metal components, DuPont(TM)

Suva(R) refrigerants, Butacite(R) interlayers for safety glass, a variety

of electronic materials and DuPont(TM) Nomex(R) and Kevlar(R) brand fibers

that are used in a wide range of systems.
