Our business is divided into three business units. Here is a short summary of the research and the work undertaken by these three divisions.
Polycarbonate – our high performance plastic material
Indestructible” is a word that describes this material particularly well. This crystal clear high performance plastic material can be used for all purposes for which other plastics are too soft, too fragile, too easily scratched, do not keep their shape or are not transparent enough.
Polyurethanes – our “secret ingredient”
The chair you are sitting on right now. The building you are in right now. The makeup you use. Cars, furniture, appliances... You can find polyurethanes in almost all areas of everyday life.
Raw materials for paints, coatings, adhesives and sealants as well as specialist products
This business division is based on over 75 years of experience and expertise; it’s no wonder that this makes us one of the world’s leading suppliers today, and even the global market leader for some ingredients.
