DSM Engineering Materials


Science Power

Realizing the impossible

DSM Engineering Materials’ scientists and engineers provide design security for customers across the globe, by applying our broad and deep expertise to find the best solutions for a wide variety of construction- and production challenges.

These challenges can relate to the Design of a product (downsizing and miniaturization, dealing with narrow tolerances, creating strength and stiffness, reducing costs, simplifying designs etcetera), the Performance of a product (avoiding degradation, noise, vibration, harshness, wear and friction or creating heat resistance etecetera), the Production of a product (processing & shaping, welding & glueing, painting & printing etcetera) or to Compliance (adhering to standards & regulations, realizing safety in electrical and electronics, doing a life cycle assessment etcetera).

Whatever the design challenge is, we are there for our customers, 24/7 and across the globe, to work closely together to find ways to realize the impossible. Browse these pages to discover more about DSM’s 24/7 science power and our technology competences.

A scientific approach to building solutions

Our dedicated teams work closely with our 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.

  • Design

    Discover the new high-performing plastic solutions for the extreme demands of next-generation example.

  • Performance

    To ensure safety and part integrity, our high-performance plastics need to meet all of the relevant requirements for each application.

  • Production

    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.

  • Compliance

    Getting a part ready for commercialization includes ensuring compliance with the relevant regulations.
