Published on 2013-02-07. Author : SpecialChem

Leverkusen -- "Leading in Polyurethanes" is the motto under which Bayer MaterialScience is appearing at the European Coatings Show taking place from March 19 - 21, 2013, in Nuremberg, Germany, in Hall 4A, stand no. 624. In the 150th year of its existence, the company is once again underscoring its leading role in polyurethane raw materials such as isocyanates and polyols, including modified systems such as polyurethane dispersions, silane-terminated prepolymers and blocked isocyanates.

The company currently boasts a very broad portfolio of products manufactured according to state-of-the-art methods. Bayer MaterialScience invests continuously in all major regions to expand its production capacities according to market developments. The company also offers comprehensive expertise in the formulation of coatings and adhesives.

At the European Coatings Show 2013, Bayer MaterialScience is presenting its raw material developments grouped according to the core industries transportation, general industry, infrastructure and IT and electronics. Sustainability is a particular point of emphasis. It is not only a matter of fundamental concern to Bayer MaterialScience, but also a driver of key and continuous efforts intended to provide optimized solutions with regard to economy and environmental impact.

A series of new developments that fulfill these objectives and help to improve the properties, cost efficiency and energy efficiency of coatings are on display at the company's stand. While the focus is on waterborne cosolvent-free dispersions, the potential of bio-based raw materials is also being investigated. Bayer MaterialScience thus is also helping to make its customers more competitive.

The company's stand also showcases topics extending beyond classic coatings and adhesives applications and marked by a high level of innovation. These topics have been derived from market and industry trends, for which Bayer MaterialScience is striving to provide timely and appropriate material solutions on the basis of its core competencies. One current example is polyurethane casting compounds that can be used to provide LEDs with long-lasting, effective protection against moisture, weather and cleaning agents.
