High-performance materials for the E/E industry

Safe and robust, efficient and attractive

Be it smartphone, laptop or appliance – safe operation and durability are key requirements for products in the Electro and Electronics (E/E) industries. The goods also have to be highly efficient and stylish. Covestro provides multiple solutions in this field.
Material from Covestro is used, for example, as a functional layer in light emitting diodes (LEDs).

Hardly any industry is less in the spotlight than the electronics sector: consumers are becoming more demanding, the intervals for product launches shorter and shorter. Covestro develops and produces various materials that are perfect for the universe of electronic and electrical goods.


The high-tech plastic Makrolon® polycarbonate is the material of choice when it comes to mechanical and electrical properties such as surface resistance, volume resistivity and dielectric strength.


For more specific requirements like heat resistance, electrical insulation, flame retardancy and many more properties, Covestro offers suitable polycarbonate blends.


In the appliance industry polyurethane thermal insulation materials contribute to the energy efficiency of modern refrigerators. The applications also can protect sensitive electronic parts against damage, dust and aggressive chemicals.

Thermoplastic polyurethanes

When it comes to outstanding abrasion resistance and rebound resilience, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) are the material of choice.


Coating raw materials provide the basis for high quality surfaces of electrical appliances and electronic devices.
