Advanced material solutions for thermal management

As vehicle electrification continues, maintaining a constant temperature—even when the vehicle is not in use—is critical to maximizing battery life and preventing overheating.

DSM offers a wide selection of material solutions and global application development support for both electric and internal combustion propulsion systems. We partner with vehicle manufacturers and key system suppliers to improve the performance of thermal management modules, water pumps and other key thermal management components.

  • PPS - Xytron™

    Xytron is a high performance plastics compound based on linear polyphenylene sulfide. Xytron offers extreme chemical resistance, dimensional stability, and is intrinsically flame retardant.

  • PA4T PPA - ForTii®

    ForTii has a unique PPA's technology with high amide density. The ForTii platform includes polymers that are the highest crystalline, highest melting point and highest glass transition temperature amongst all PPA.

  • PA410 - EcoPaXX®

    EcoPaXX is a high-performance aliphatic, biobased polyamide that uniquely balances the benefits of typical short and long chain polyamides, such as low moisture uptake and high mechanical performance.
