Ensuring your components enhance vehicle safety
Our teams recommend material solutions based on how each polymer responds to real-life conditions, design requirements and different manufacturing processes. We provide complete regulatory compliance documentation, including material safety data sheets, UL statements, and IMDS statements to streamline your quality assurance process. This has enabled our partners to deliver high-performance connected car components that offer best-in-class heat and electrical resistance.
Helping to achieve lightweighting goals
We partner with manufacturers to assess every viable opportunity for lightweighting, and can streamline the design process through computer aided engineering (CAE) services that accurately predict part fatigue and potential failure modes. Our unidirectional (UD) tapes, which are up to 70% lighter than metal, enable reductions to the weight and thickness of automotive structural parts without compromising mechanical strength.
Improving vehicle sustainability
As a sustainability-led company, our automotive expertise includes a broad range of applications that impact fuel efficiency – from electric engine actuator gears and low-friction timing chains to high-strength bearing cages. We’ve enabled manufacturers worldwide to develop safe, reliable parts for zero-emission vehicles – including for hydrogen fuel cells that prevent ion leaching and hydrolytic aging, and electric vehicle lithium-ion batteries that demonstrate outstanding thermal stability.
At DSM, our mission is to help our partners evolve best practices, drive economic growth and benefit people and the planet. With a global footprint spanning every major market, we provide our customers with access to reliable supply chains as demand grows. As we support the government of India and the Indian automotive industry in achieving AMP’s goals, we are at the ready with materials and expertise that will ensure India’s vehicles and vehicle components comply with critical safety standards, reduce weight wherever possible, and accelerate India’s growth in the global automotive market.
