High Performance Plastics

Solutions for a smarter world

Our world becomes more mobile and connected every day – on the road and in the home, in the office and on the street. The markets for engineering plastics increasingly require innovative solutions that make people’s lives safer, more convenient and healthier, while addressing the challenge of climate change.

New standards in design, comfort and ease of use are combining with the quest to cut energy use: together with the introduction of circular design thinking, these trends are driving strong market growth for engineering plastics. With our broad, high-quality materials portfolio and in-depth technology know-how, we work in close collaboration with customers to develop new applications in response to the search for lighter, stronger and more durable materials, developing solutions to keep them ahead of the curve and enabling them to lead the market through the use of cutting-edge technology.

Our aim is to continually shift the DSM Engineering Plastics portfolio toward higher-value, specialty materials, introducing more advanced grades with improved properties.
