Again and again. our invention power work for you by improving your productivity, driving sustainability, ensuring reliability and co-creating future proof businesses. INVENTING FOR YOU. Thus, we are committed to constantly search for things that will make a real difference to you. Things that will make your business grow, help you drive profitability, make your solutions safer. This we do with a very specific understanding of innovation which we call inventing.
5 Inventing always starts with thinking about your unmet business challenges. It requires an in- depth understanding of your needs along the whole value chain and building and fostering close and trustful partnership with you. To make sure: What we invent stands the test of time. 5.

POLYISOCYANATES AND PREPOLYMERS : Grades with shining properties thane coatings and adhesives, blocked polyiso- cyanates for 1K polyurethane baking coatings or hydrophilized polyisocyanates as crosslinkers for water-reducible polyurethane systems, our products come into play wherever crosslinking is used to achieve high resistances and reliable adhesion under efficient conditions.
9 Our solutions are in use today in a variety of applications, such as automotive OEMs, automotive refinishing, and coatings for wood, industrial goods and plastics. They are also used in reactive adhesives, textile coatings, and anticorrosion coatings. Customized properties Gloss, leveling, scratch resistance, hardness and flexibility can be precisely adjusted by the choice of polyisocyanate and polyol.
