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 – 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. DSM’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. That’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 it’s airbag containers, brake tubes or the brake booster system itself, DSM materials and expertise bring one critical quality to the automotive industry: Reliability.

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.
