Bayer MaterialScience AG is one of the world's largest producers of polymers and high-performance plastics. Its innovative developments in coatings, adhesives, insulating materials and sealants, polycarbonates and polyurethanes significantly enhance the quality of our lives, particularly in the automotive and construction, electrical and electronics, household, sports and leisure sectors.
The five business units together form the basis for Bayer MaterialScience's business. They are responsible for developing and manufacturing our products and constantly driving forward new ideas.
Coatings Adhesives and Sealants - This business unit is reposonsible for the development and production of a broad range of raw materials for coatings, adhesives and sealants that ake the impossible possible.
Polycarbonates - Polycarbonate is a classic among Bayer Materialscience's products. Makrolon(R), the all-round material for today and tomorrow, is particularly well known.
Polyurethanes - The materials that foams are made of. And foams come in many different guises: rigid, flexible, semi-flexible or not even foam-like at all.
Theromplastic Polyurethanes - Theromplastic polyurethanes have become simply indispensable. And that's a very good thing. One of their finctions is to make sure that your car functions properly.
Inorganic Basic Chemicals - It all starts with chlroine, and without the Inorganic Basic Chemicals business unit we would have a problem.
Wolff Cellulosics is the center of exellence for cellulose chemistry within the Bayer Group. Its cellulose derivatives are used as additives for building materials and as raw materials for printing inks and surface coatings.
High-purity cellulose derivatives are also used in food products, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. At its state of the art pilot plant, Wolff Cellulosics develops new products and technologies for the production and processing of synthetic derivatives of the renewable raw material cellulose.
