Polyurethanes & engineering plastics

From innovative insulation products that make buildings more durable and energy efficient to high quality materials for coastal protection and surface solutions, we help our customers succeed with ambitious architecture and infrastructure projects and contribute to a sustainable future.

Styrenic foams 

With our diverse styrene-based product portfolio we offer reliable and sustainable solutions for your construction project. One prominent example: Neopor® - the enhancement of the insulation classic Styropor®. The grey insulation material makes an important contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions over the long application period of more than 50 years.
