COVESTRO Peinture, Encres, Adhésifs et spécialités Presentation
Profile: Supplier of raw materials
Covestro is one of the biggest suppliers of high-tech polymer materials and innovative integrated solutions which can be found in many products and applications in everyday life. The company makes most of its sales with products which occupy leading positions on the world market. It has 40 production sites worldwide, employs 16 200 employees and achieved a global turnover of 14.1 Mrd. Euros in 2017.
As the inventor of polyurethane chemistry, its business unit CAS (Coatings, Adhesives and Specialties) is a major supplier of raw materials for the industry of paint, adhesives and specialties.
A stylish car, a sports shoe or a parquet floor may be completely different products, but what they have in common is they are probably protected with coatings and held together with adhesives made of raw materials from Covestro. In addition, the company supplies raw materials for specialty chemicals which are the basis of cosmetic, textile and medical products.
With more than 75 years of experience in polyurethane chemistry research and development. Covestro continue to develop PU raw materials for coatings systems for use in many industries and applications. Such as DESMODUR® eco N – the world’s first PU cross-linker made from 70 percent biomass. And the new thermoactivated hardener Blulogiq, which enables optimized clear-coating of automotive plastic add-on parts
This wealth of experience in polyurethane chemistry is today the basis for innovative adhesives that create resilient and durable solutions for many industries and applications. For example Dispercoll® U – a polyurethane water-based dispersion, which gives you the best of two worlds: The rapid user-friendliness of one-component adhesives combined with the proven adhesive strength of two-component systems. Or adhesives based on Desmodur® quix 175: They cure at room temperature within two days. Thus long delivery times for your customers are no longer an issue.
Covestro continue to invest in research and development, collaborating closely with our customers and their value chain, to improve existing products and develop new polyurethane building blocks that address current needs and anticipate future challenges.
