DSM Engineering Materials



DSM’s unique materials enable cutting-edge design, higher performance in thinner Tablets.  Our material enables more computing power in a smaller space.

High heat resistant plastics for thinner Tablets

Enabling the next generation of tablets

Consumers enjoy the ease of using tablets for social media, web surfing, and streaming video content. As mobile connectivity continues to grow, tablets remain an important part of the mix of mobile devices available. Smartphones and tablets have changed the way we consume video content, find information, and stay connected.

Our solutions empower you to design the next generation of mobile electronics. Together with our team of application experts, our unique materials enable cutting-edge design, higher performance in a thinner device, and the ability to unlock the full potential of sensor data transmitted via the Internet of Things (IoT).

As we demand more from our mobile devices, they demand more from the materials used to manufacture them. More computing power in a smaller space needs plastics with high heat resistance. Wires and connectors need halogen-free flame retardancy to reach safety and sustainability targets. Our portfolio includes materials that meet all these requirements.

Featured customer applications

USB-C Connectors

Electronics | Desktops / PCs |

Stanyl® PA46 offers the safest solution for USB connectors due to high HDT's a CTI rating of 600V is achieved (enabling up to 27 Watt power). The high CTI Stanyl® fails only after more than 2x the number of salt solution droplets compared to a lower CTI LCP during CTI (Comparative Tracking Index) test.;Due to the high wear resistance Stanyl® PA46 shows no sign of wear after 10,000 insertion/extraction cycles, where a PA9T shows a clear wear out at the mating surface after durability tests.;Stanyl® PA46 allow for cost effective solutions due to its excellent processability and high flowability, enabling thin walled designs and strong weld lines. Stanyl PA46’s weld line strength is 3 times higher than that of a LCP or PA9T.;UL94-V0 at 0.2mm wall thickness, extensive color portfolio, including light colors. No blistering in USB-C connector designs.;Stanyl® PA46 powers high-bandwidth USB-C connectors for Virtual Reality - Virtual Link Connectors (SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps) for headset cameras and sensors.

Audio Jack Connectors

explore our expertise
  • Downsizing & Miniaturization

    As our economy places more focus on efficiency, industry is responding by creating products that are thinner, lighter, and smaller – with the same or more functionality.

  • Strength, stiffness & fatigue

    As car manufacturers continuously focus on reducing weight to improve fuel efficiency, replacing metal parts with plastic remains a key challenge.

  • Safety in electrical & electronics

    Safety is a key concern whenever plastics and electronics meet, and in today’s digitized world, that happens with increasing frequency.

  • Life cycle assessment

    When we talk about Bright Science, Brighter Living, one of the core ideas we’re expressing is our concern for sustainability. That’s why we have integrated green design into our business.
