Covestro at JEC World 2019: Advanced composite technology for reducing the carbon footprint
More sustainable material solutions for the electronics industry.
The electronics industry is facing an increasing demand for sustainable solutions to reduce the environmental impact from the manufacture, use and disposal of electronic devices. Covestro is taking care of the situation, and its new thermoplastic composite technology has proved to be a sustainable way of producing thinner, lighter and stronger components for electronic products.
A recent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has found a laptop cover made of Maezio™ continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites from Covestro can significantly reduce the carbon footprint by more than 70 percent compared to one made from conventional aluminum-magnesium alloy.
