DSM engine cover for Mercedes-Benz A class at 2014 India Auto Expo
DSM has worked with the automotive industry to design better, smarter, safer, lighter â€“ and increasingly greener components. At the 2014 Auto Expo, DSM will be highlighting the following solutions. Air management solutions: DSM, the inventor of Diablo technology, offers a complete portfolio of high-performance plastics for every component in air induction systems, including ducts, resonators and end caps. DSMâ€™s portfolio provides suitable materials for virtually every temperature range and mechanical properties required for air management systems.
Safety solutions: There is nothing more important in automotive than safety. Thatâ€™s why for the past 20 years DSM has developed a range of automotive materials that perform better for longer than metals and most plastics. Whether itâ€™s airbag containers, brake tubes or the brake booster system itself, DSM materials and expertise bring one critical quality to the automotive industry: Reliability.
EcoPaXX in automotive applications: last year DSM had announced several successes of DSMâ€™s bio-based material in automotive applications: the engine cover and a crank shaft cover.
This year, Mercedes-Benz has chosen a high performance polyamide largely made from renewable resources for the engine beauty cover of the brand-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Around 70% of the raw materials used to make this polyamide is from DSM.
Kurt Maschke: industry manager for Air Management segment, Krijn Dijkstra: industry manager for Exterior and Interior as well as Safety components, Sanjay Jain: Director of DSM Engineering Plastics India, and Ojas Mehta: Marketing Director DSM Engineering Plastics India will be present at the DSM pavilion.
