Electrical components

DSM helps in developing electrical components and products that are compliant with the regulation, green and deliver on all the major trends -from thinnovation to globalization.

Getting powered up

We’ve been in the electrical business for more than 25 years – which means our global team not only understands our but more importantly, your business as well.  That means supporting you all the way in developing electrical components and products that are compliant with the regulation, are kind to the planet and deliver on all the major trends -from thinnovation to globalization – and all while managing costs as efficiently as possible.

DSM plastics provide electrical components with extra safety and reliability for intelligent appliances in smart homes

DSM announced that it is the first plastics producer in the world to offer the grail of appliance connector manufacturers: materials that meet the highest flame resistance requirements of standards organizations all around the world and which also have the required electrical properties.

Featured applications

Brushholders (electrical components)

Electrical | Electrical Components

Stanyl® PA46 allows for reliable solutions due to good mechanical properties at low and elevated temperatures, HDT 290°C, excellent CTI values and arc resistance values, UL146 class F (unreinforced) and class H (reinforced grades); Stanyl® PA46 allows for cost effective solutions due to much shorter molding cycle times as compared to most competitive materials

Bobbins

Electrical | Electrical Components

Stanyl® PA46 allows for reliable solutions due to good creep resistance and good electrical properties (UL146 class F certified (unreinforced) and class H (reinforced grades); Akulon® PA6 and Stanyl® PA46 allow for cost efficient solutions due to high toughness levels resulting in low reject levels in winding process and due to excellent flowability enabling thin wall designs; Arnite T (PBT) and Arnite A (PET) allow for reliable solutions due to good electrical properties especially at elevated temperatures and due to excellent dimensional stability

Endlaminates (electrical components)

Electrical | Electrical Components

Stanyl® PA46 allows for reliable solutions due to good creep resistance and good electrical properties (UL146 class F certified (unreinforced) and class H (reinforced grades); Stanyl® PA46 allows for cost efficient solutions due to high toughness levels resulting in low reject levels in winding process and due to excellent flowability enabling thin wall designs

Electrical | Electrical Components

Stanyl® PA46 allows for reliable solutions due to its excellent resistance to peak temperatures up to 280°C, its good electrical insulation properties with a RTI > 100°C, its proven stiffness at high temperatures and its fatigue resistance at high temperatures

A scientific approach to building solutions

Our dedicated teams work closely with 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.

  • Design

    Design

    Discover the new high-performing plastic solutions for the extreme demands of next-generation example.

  • Performance

    Performance

    To ensure safety and part integrity, our high-performance plastics need to meet all of the relevant requirements for each application.

  • Production

    Production

    Improving on a part includes improving how it is produced. We can help you to improve the production and secondary operations processes.

  • Compliance

    Compliance

    Getting a part ready for commercialization includes ensuring compliance with the relevant regulations.
