    Achtung! Halt! VW Shouts NEIN to Kullman Koolant!

    3rd Largest Automaker Rejects Unsafe DuPont Kullman Koolant for Car A/C!

    THE WEAK IN REVIEW

    Good Afternoon, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buona Sera,

    Readers, looks like once again DuPont's Ms. Kullman has delivered up an UNSAFE, toxic mishap to the marketplace. Imprelis, Tell Us!

    The third largest automaker in the world, Volkswagen, declared this week just past they are joining Daimler in rejecting the grossly expensive DuPont/Honeywell A/C refrigerant for cars, HFO1234yf. Call it the Kullman Koolant after DuPont Chieftess, Ellen J. Kullman who loves to shower the media with tales of her advanced engineering at DuPont.

    A bit of recent history. Last year Daimler engineers decided not to accept the findings of DuPont's bonus-conflicted researchers, and perform their own tests on the Kullman Koolant. Shockingly they found the Kullman Koolant leaking on a hot engine could explode into flames and lethal toxic gas in the event of a serious collision. Daimler, which made 1.5 millions cars in 2012 renounced the Kullman Koolant as potentially dangerous to its customers. VW has followed suit. VW made 9.3 million cars last year. That means 11 million cars this year will not be equipped with the Kullman Koolant. VW will be engineering its own coolant with much safer, much less costly CO2.

    Looks like the Titans of Toxins in Fortress Wilmington will not be enjoying that EU-mandated monopoly they figured on, or profits over people. OOPS, will there be fat write-offs and write-downs ahead?
