Engineering Materials

Delivering medical devices trusted by patients and healthcare professionals

Medical device manufacturers are working to meet rapidly growing demand for increasingly sophisticated medical devices around the world. At the same time, regulators in the United States, European Union, and other regions are implementing increasingly stringent measures to enhance patient safety and mitigate risk.

In this complex environment, advanced material innovation requires both an understanding of next-generation science and emerging medical industry trends. This is why DSM developed a portfolio of advanced material solutions engineered to meet today’s needs as well as growing challenges.
