DSM provides materials for electronic applications and components for developing products which are thinner, smaller and greener . View our portfolio
DSM provides performance materials for a range of electrical applications including switchgears connectors and lighting and deliver on trends like thinnovation
DSMs high-quality portfolio includes materials for a broad range of applications – both to meet the demands of existing energy companies, as well as enabling a future built on more sustainable energy.
Our portfolio of engineering plastics are developed with the knowledge that technology and innovation go hand-in-hand. They’re used across a broad range of consumer goods, including white goods, food packaging, and sporting equipment.
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.
Industrial equipment is driven by multitudes of mechanical parts. As we continue to develop new and better engineering plastics, we are helping our customers develop mechanical parts that are higher quality, safer, more sustainable, and more cost-efficient.
Engineering plastics have the power to transform the transportation industry by making it smarter, safer, lighter, and greener. Know more about our solutions
Our broad portfolio of materials enables manufacturers of medical devices, fabrics and packaging to design for the future, developing new, innovative options that perform better than what was available before.
Cyclists want and need be as comfortable as possible in order to perform at an optimum level, especially when the weather is rainy and windy. To meet the need for high-performance protective cycling rain jackets, Craft Sportswear, Team Sunweb and DSM Engineering Materials designed, developed and optimized their cycling rain jackets with an Arnitel® membrane.
Hydrogen will first play a major role in the heavier and long-range transportation segments—buses, vans, and medium to large cars (in fleets and taxis) because they are heavier vehicles and have longer range distances driven. DSM has been on the forefront of hydrogen fuel cell technology—we have already done extensive research on and development of hydrogen storage tanks and fuel cell components.
We realize the transition towards renewable energy is indeed challenging, yet DSM has set challenging ambitions on GHG emissions and a transition to renewable energy. We are focused on overcoming the challenges of climate change, accumulating plastic waste and depleting fossil fuel resources.
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.
Discover the new high-performing plastic solutions for the extreme demands of next-generation example.
To ensure safety and part integrity, our high-performance plastics need to meet all of the relevant requirements for each application.
Improving on a part includes improving how it is produced. Whether we are helping you improve the production process itself, or reducing and eliminating secondary operations, we support you through the entire process.
Getting a part ready for commercialization includes ensuring compliance with the relevant regulations.
