Engineering Materials


Building and construction are often resource-heavy activities. Today, engineering plastics can replace conventional materials in a wide variety of applications - improving performance while reducing environmental impact.

Designing the future of transportation

Transportation by truck, train and airplane is essential to running the world – yet it is also responsible for more than 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. Improving transportation by making it smarter, safer, lighter, and greener is a key focus for the industry and governing bodies.

Engineering plastics have the power to transform the transportation industry, creating solutions that serve people, the planet and profit. Our high-performance materials, coupled with the knowledge and resources behind them, are helping manufacturers change the way they think about application design.
