Introducing DuPont(TM) Liveo(TM) for healthcare silicone solutions
WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

DuPont (NYSE: DD), a globally recognized leader in silicone-based technology 
with more than 70 years of experience advancing healthcare through materials 
innovation, is introducing DuPont™ Liveo™, a new brand name for its extensive 
range of silicone healthcare solutions. 

Inspired by the terms "live" and "to be alive," the new Liveo™ brand name 
reflects DuPont Healthcare's drive to create next-generation, innovative 
solutions that can help patients live life to the fullest. "As the new name for 
the longest legacy in healthcare applied silicones brought by DOW CORNING™, 
Liveo™ stands for smarter healthcare and positive patient outcomes", says 
Jennifer Gemo Mathis, DuPont Liveo™ Healthcare Global Marketing Manager.

More than a name change, the Liveo™ brand reinforces DuPont's commitment in 
healthcare and renewed energy to build on more than 70 years of innovation 
development capabilities, regulatory and manufacturing know-how, and 
application expertise. 

Historically marketed with a DOW CORNING™ or SILASTIC™ trade name, the product 
offering, and packaging material are not changing, and all locations will 
continue to manufacture the same products, using the same rigorous processes 
and quality oversight as before. Looking ahead, the Liveo™ brand will reinforce 
DuPont's competitive advantages and leadership positions in three key 
healthcare markets – Biopharmaceutical Processing, Pharmaceutical Solutions and 
Medical Devices.

"We are making significant investments in both capital and resources to 
strengthen our strategic capabilities to support our customers leadership in 
key healthcare industry market segments, and we are particularly proud of the 
contribution that our teams and products have provided to our customers without 
disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak", says Eugenio Toccalino, 
DuPont Liveo™ Healthcare Global Business Director.

The Liveo™ brand product line includes pharma tubing and overmolded assemblies 
for single-use systems in biopharma processing, transdermal and topical drug 
delivery systems, medical adhesives for advanced wound care and ostomy care and 
wearables, silicone elastomers for a wide range of specialty medical devices, 
anti-flatulent active pharmaceutical ingredients, silicone antifoams, coating, 
fluids, emulsions and much more. The Liveo™ product line continues to be 
manufactured at the DuPont Healthcare Industry Materials Site (HIMS) in 
Hemlock, Michigan, USA, which is an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14000 registered site
