Covestro and Teknor Apex announce a cooperation agreement on compounding TPU

Updated: May 22, 2020

Materials manufacturer Covestro and global plastics compounder Teknor Apex intend to cooperate closely on compounding thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and have signed a cooperation agreement to this effect. TPU is an extremely versatile plastic, which Covestro has been producing in pure form for many years for use in various industry sectors. Through compounding, i.e. mixing with other materials, the array of achievable properties can be increased considerably further. This is a particular strength of Teknor Apex.

“We are happy to team-up with such a competent and complementary partner for processing TPU on a global scale,” says Dr. Thorsten Dreier, the new global head of the TPU business at Covestro. “Together with Teknor Apex, we want to develop customized products to grow together with our existing and new customers.” Covestro supports the marketing of the jointly developed products by Teknor Apex with its Desmoflex® brand. 




科思创与Teknor Apex宣布就复合TPU达成合作协议


材料制造商Covestro与全球塑料复合材料制造商TeknorApex拟就复合热塑性聚氨酯(TPU)进行密切合作,并为此签署了该合作协议。TPU是一种用途极其广泛的塑料,多年来,Covestro一直以来生产纯TPU材料,以应用于不同的行业。通过复合技术,即将TPU与其他材料相混合,可进一步大幅增加TPU材料的各种性能。而这是TeknorApex的独特优势。

“我们很高兴能与这样一个能力出众且优势互补的合作伙伴合作,从而在全球范围内加工TPU,”Covestro的TPU业务的新全球负责人ThorstenDreier博士说。“我们希望与TeknorApex一起开发定制型产品,以实现与现有客户和新客户的共同成长。”Covestro支持与TeknorApex以其Desmoflex®品牌联合开发的产品的营销。
