DSM in Engineering Plastics
In close partnership with our customers, we develop innovative high performance engineering plastic 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.
Plastic packaging waste feeds another critical environmental issue: the plastic garbage patches floating in our oceans. At DSM, we find this threat to our ecosystem unacceptable, and work closely with APK to find outlets for high-quality re-granulates from solvent based recycling of complex multi-layer packaging.
The connected home and the smart grid are driving a transformation of the electrical goods industry. This extraordinary level of connectivity depends on many things, but one of the most elementary things of all is…the simple connector. DSM has come to the aid of appliance connector designers with advanced engineering plastics.
Akulon® RePurposed is made from abandoned nylon fishing nets that are cut up, cleaned, extruded, inspected for quality, and shipped back to us for compounding. The compounded grades rely on 100% sustainable feedstocks, while delivering material performance nearly on par with our virgin material grades.
As a global supplier of high-performance plastics, DSM has built global leadership positions in a wide variety of industries by designing and developing better, smarter, stronger, safer, smaller, lighter, longer-lasting or more sustainable solutions. Our dedicated teams of industry-experts, scientists and engineers work closely together with our customers to find ways to realize the impossible, 24/7 and across the globe.
Our innovative high performance plastics are developed to meet a wide variety of technological challenges in automotive. Browse these pages to learn more about how our industry experts, scientists and engineers work hand in hand with our customers to develop next generation solutions.
