Covestro invests in research and development, collaborating closely with their customers and value chain, to improve existing products and to develop new materials that address current and future needs of our world. They strive to provide environmentally, compatible and cost-efficient solutions, using their worldwide network of facilities, one of many reasons why many coatings formulators turn to these globally recognized products on offer.

Where can these polyurethane raw materials be used?

Covestro’s polyurethane raw materials are used for the production of high-performance, high-quality polyurethane coatings in industries such as construction, automotive, plastic, wood, corrosion protection, textiles and general industrial applications. In addition, they provide coating manufacturers with formulating freedom using their waterborne, solvent borne, high-solids and UV-curing technologies. This wide range of polyisocyanates and polyols on offer, make it possible to formulate polyurethane coatings with performance properties that can be specifically designed for each individual application. From ultra-lightweight automotive parts or water-borne fabrics for the fashion sector, to high-performance components used in health care.
