Covestro is expanding its production capacity for polycarbonate films at the Dormagen site. The company is investing roughly EUR 20 million in the construction of a new coextrusion plant for high-quality, multilayer flat films, including the associated infrastructure and logistics. 15 new jobs will be created for the operation of the plant which is scheduled to come on stream in 2017. The products are used in security cards, automotive interiors, medical devices, and displays.
Covestro offers a diverse range of polycarbonate and thermoplastic elastomer films for a wide variety of applications, as well as a range of high-quality specialty films. Development activities in Europe are managed by three competence centers. Specialized on polycarbonate flat films, the center in Dormagen, Germany, is home to production, a technical center for film processing, a showroom and two research laboratories, which have been totally re-equipped. The competence centers located in Leverkusen and Bomlitz, Germany, are dedicated to film coating and thermoplastic elastomer films, respectively.
