Covestro Textile Coatings

Polyurethane, Polyaspartics coatings are only as good as the raw materials used to formulate them. That is why many coatings formulators turn to the globally recognized and proven products offered by Covestro (formerly known as Bayer MaterialScience).

Otto Bayer invented polyurethanes in 1937. Today, Covestro continues to build on his initial discoveries.

Covestro offer a comprehensive line of polyurethane raw materials for the production of high-performance, high-quality polyurethane coatings for automotive, construction, plastic, wood, corrosion protection, general industrial, and many other applications.

In addition, Covestro provide coating manufacturers formulating freedom with their waterborne, solvent borne, high-solids and UV-curing technologies.

The wide range of polyisocyanate and polyol technologies makes it possible to formulate polyurethane coatings with performance properties that can be specifically designed for each individual application.

Covestro continue to invest in research and development, collaborating closely with their customers and their value chain, to improve existing products and develop new polyurethane building blocks that address current needs and anticipate future challenges.
