Performance materials. Engineered for Functionality and Scale Up
At Covestro we share a passion for driving innovation that brings real customer benefits. In additive manufacturing, we use our material expertise across technologies and markets to place performance at the heart of our solutions. Join us at Formnext 2022 and learn how performance materials fuel additive manufacturing for production.
Putting performance first.
Performance means applications you can count on. From extreme weather or temperature resistance, to toughness or stiffness, we develop 3D printing solutions with material and part performance you can trust. These are based on data from tests designed and carried out for specific customer needs, tailored to meet the demands of your unique applications. Together with you, we’re accelerating production to help launch additive manufacturing on an industrial scale.
Our 3D printing solutions cater to industries ranging from automotive, aviation aerospace and other transportation to electronics, sports & lifestyle and medical or dental. And we service production tooling such as jigs and fixtures, composite tooling and investment casting.
