WHO WE ARE
Polymer technology revolutionizes the automotive industry.
The future is already here There is a lot of talk about the automotive of the future, but inCovestro we want to talk about the mobility of the present and what we can do today to make vehicles better in terms of sustainability and environmental impact.
Hunting for lightness with polyurethanes and polycarbonates.
More sustainability with films, elastomers, and high tech coatings. The new polymeric materials created for the automotive industry are designed to meet the needs and requests of industry and people.
The new polymeric materials advance medicine
They increase the duration and quality of life. Advances in medicine and the improvement of health care require biomedical materials with ever-higher performance. The technology must adapt to the requests for greater access to treatment and create prevention and diagnostic devices that are simple to use.
For decades, the high-quality materials provided by Covestro have demonstrated their exceptional and cutting-edge performance. Devices made with the highest quality polyurethane and high tech polyurethane products are intended for hospitals or outpatient care. Alongside these, a range of latest generation products for the administration of personalized treatments.
The use of materials such as polycarbonate and polyurethane allows significant advantages including reliability and safety for patients. And companies are guaranteed fair cost-effectiveness for long-term medical care sustainability.
The high functionality of the materials, their performance and the ability to respond promptly to supply requests make Covestro the ideal partner for biomedical industries and companies in the sector.
Building in construction thanks to advanced polymers
An estimate attests that the construction world absorbs around 13% of the production of polymeric raw materials. The new building designs environments where to live, work, move, meet: places dedicated to carrying out activities and functions, in which the particular characteristics of the polymers find the full application: lightness, durability, insulation, economy, ease of use.
Polycarbonate, polyurethane, films, adhesives, coatings: polymers change living spaces
Covestro means high technology applied to polymeric raw materials and sets new standards for the construction industry with a wide range of products that respond to the needs of both private and industrial and public buildings.
Advanced polymers innovate the clothing industry
From the first synthetic fabrics of the 30s-40s to the refined polymers for today’s clothing: the polymeric raw materials used for clothes and accessories have undergone great changes. In search of advanced features, more and more attention is paid to practicality, breathability, and lightness.
Polymers for effective and sustainable cosmetics
It is not only with the selfie-generation that the growing trend of cosmetics in recent years is explained. Taking care of your person is putting yourself in a positive way towards others. Give value to yourself and express the desire to be in a relationship: cosmetics is not appearance but a contemporary need.
In 2018, made in Italy cosmetics grow by 2% with a total turnover of 11.2 billion (source: Ass. Cosmetica Italia). These are products that are also affirming themselves on the international market with an export growth that is second only to wines and with a commercial balance (+ 8.1%) that exceeds sectors such as fashion and eyewear.
In this context, companies need to be able to count on the impeccable quality of the raw materials used. Covestro polymers provide exactly that. They set new standards in the cosmetic sector and present unparalleled quality in terms of yield and protection.
Polymeric raw materials in electronics: high technology and sustainability for a sector in continuous evolution
The economic data of the electronic products industry are constantly growing. The Confindustria graphs of the last few years indicate a trend that stands at around 7% (source: ANIE – National Federation of Electrotechnical and Electronic Companies).
The high revenues of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced devices contribute to the positive numbers. The consumer is willing to spend more money as long as he obtains the latest generation of high-performance appliances.
Covestro researches and produces raw materials that effectively respond to the needs of the most advanced electrical and electronic devices. Thermoplastic materials, foams, films, elastomers, TPUs, composite materials studied and dedicated for various electronic, electrical and household appliances applications: Covestro polymers are used in device casings and housings, screens or luminous panels, LED lights and photographic lenses, housings and battery isolation.
