Develop the materials of the future with us: high-tech polymer materials

Covestro business units

Covestro specializes in high-tech polymer materials. We produce innovative plastics that can be found in almost all modern products. We can proudly say: with over 10,000 different products, we are currently one of the world’s largest manufacturers. We are driven by the desire to grow. But we are going to do it our way – with smart technologies and products that we are proud of. Innovations that benefit society and reduce the impact on the environment. Thanks to our boundless curiosity, we create ultra-light, safe and strong polymer-based material solutions. Today, they already offer totally new possibilities for the mobility, architecture and electronics industries of the future.

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.

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.
