DSM Engineering Materials has announced its intent to expand its high-performance materials production capacity at its Jiangyin plant in Jiangsu Province, China. Work on an additional compounding line began in February 2022, with completion expected in 2023. The new line will help DSM meet growing demand for high-performance polymers used in a range of end applications — particularly for electric vehicles (EVs) and in electrics and electronics — and will help drive the shift to a low-carbon, circular economy.

In recent years, rising living standards and increasingly ambitious environmental policies have driven demand for sustainable high-performance materials in China. The new state-of-the-art compounding line will help meet demand for high-performance specialty materials such as Akulon PA6/PA66, Arnite PET/PBT, Arnitel thermoplastic copolyester, EcoPaXX PA410, ForTii PA 4T/PPA, and Stanyl PA 46.

Caroline Mitterlehner, Vice President, Specialties, DSM Engineering Materials, commented: “China is an important and fast-growing country for DSM Engineering Materials. As such, we aim to strengthen our business partnerships by continuing to invest in key areas of sustainable growth. The Jiangyin site’s new compounding line enables us to further expand our specialty materials offering for customers in China, supporting their growing demand for sustainable electrics, electronics, and automotive products.”
