Covestro Waterborne Polyurethane Coating Technology Makes Electric Vehicle Industry More Environmentally Friendly

Comprehensive material solutions for electrical vehicles

To echo the increasing awareness of environmental protection around the globe, Executive Yuan passed the laws which will effectively ban the sales of fuel-powered engines in 2035, commencing the transition from fuel-powered to electric motorcycles with regard to new motorcycle sales. However, in addition to mobile-source air pollution from motorcycles emissions, the volatile organic compound (VOC) added in the traditional processes of motorcycle manufacturing is also one of the causes of air pollution (PM2.5). In order to tackle air pollution, Covestro offers alternative methods to reduce VOC and the creations of PM2.5. Bayhydrol® and Bayhydur®, our newly developed technology, includes a waterborne polyurethane (PU) coating to facilitate the motorcycle industry in the successful transition from “solvent-borne” to “water-borne” technology. Covesto’s polyurethane (including thermoplastic polyurethane, TPU), polycarbonates (PCS), and thermoplastic composites also provide comprehensive solutions for electric vehicle bodies, battery packs, and charging stations and piles with lightweight and longer cruising distance.
