Accelerating the shift to renewable energy

The global focus on transitioning to a low-carbon economy is driving the development of new technologies and innovative solutions. Scaling these innovations to create sustainable alternatives for fossil fuels is creating the need for advanced plastic materials that perform in a wide variety of conditions.

Our high-quality portfolio includes materials for a broad range of applications – both to meet the demands of existing energy companies, as well as enabling a future built on more sustainable energy. Our materials meet the high demands needed to set new standards in design, comfort and ease of use, as well as accelerating the quest to drastically cut energy use. As we move toward circular design thinking, hoping to capture and re-use plastics at the end of a component’s life, engineering plastics can play a leading role in creating a more sustainable product lifecycle.

With each customer, we combine our in-depth technology knowledge with close customer collaboration to develop new applications that answer the search for lighter, stronger and more durable materials. Our focus is always on helping our customers stay ahead of the curve, so they can lead the market through the use of cutting-edge technology, including high-value, specialty materials, and more advanced grades that demonstrate improved mechanical performance in the most demanding conditions.

A scientific approach to building solutions

Our dedicated teams work closely with our customers to look at the entire process of developing new parts and components – whether it is a case of metal replacement, or developing solutions that are stronger, safer and more effective. Our methodical approach extends to every step of the process, from design and material performance to production and compliance.

  • Downsizing & Miniaturization

    As our economy places more focus on efficiency, industry is responding by creating products that are thinner, lighter, and smaller – with the same or more functionality.

  • Flame retardancy

    As the electronics industry moved to capture more computing power into smaller spaces, it puts bigger demands on the materials used to manufacture the various parts.

  • Degradation & Stability

    One of the most challenging environments we work in is under the hood of a car. The parts used in these applications are subjected to high temperatures, broad temperature ranges and corrosive chemicals.
