High performance for all

We’re a world leader in high-performance and increasingly sustainable thermoplastics used in automotive, electrical & electronics, building & construction, medical, food packaging and consumer goods (to name but a few). Our materials enable lighter, stronger and more durable products - which in turn makes people’s lives safer, more convenient and healthier – and all while helping to tackle carbon emissions.

Mobility and connectivity

Perhaps the greatest trend driving our markets is the move towards mobility and connectivity - on the road, in the home and office, and on the street. We’re seeing new standards in design and usability coupled with our planet’s pressing need to cut energy use and avoid waste through circular design thinking.

Take ‘thinovation’ - the trend for creating smaller, lighter, greener and safer working parts in electronic devices. Today, our materials create components like the tiny connectors that give mobile phones their incredible functionality. Now, as we learn more about how to integrate electronics into plastic materials, these same solutions could be used in cars. Speaking of which…

On the road to lower emissions

Today, our plastics can be found in most of the world’s cars. The reason? These tough yet lightweight materials are meeting the extreme needs of auto manufacturers - for example by reducing engine friction and performing in red-hot temperatures, long-term. Our plastics also meet the increasingly extreme needs of the planet. In the case of reducing engine friction, for example, around around 1 gram of CO2 emissions are saved for every km driven.
