At DSM, our portfolio includes a full range of material grades engineered for the specific conditions across a wide variety of automotive applications. Used in applications including chain tensioners, MTD parts, gears, charge air cooler end caps, turbo ducts, front end modules, fire walls and pedals, our materials help designers achieve significant weight savings while also withstanding the sometimes extreme conditions of use. This includes resistance to high temperatures, humidity and chemicals, without losing performance at the material level.
Our next-generation solutions will contribute to further vehicle weight reductions as OEMs strive to meet the average 200kg reduction in vehicle weight needed to meet 2025 emission targets. These solutions include Arnitel HT for air ducts; Stanyl and Akulon Diablo for turbo components; Akulon Fuellock for CNG/H2 tanks; Xytron HR PPS for cooling pump impellers; Akulon PA6 for oil sumps; and Arnitel, ForTii, Xytron or EcoPaXX for crankshaft covers.
