Strong brands – high-quality, innovative products
Coatings, adhesives and specialty systems based on polyurethane raw materials from Bayer
MaterialScience reliably protect surfaces against the effects of weather and chemicals, while, at
the same time, offering high-quality mechanical properties. Environmentally-compatible
Bayhydrol® and Bayhydur® coating raw materials, for instance, have proved particularly
successful in water-based polyurethane paint systems.

production of automotive components, data carriers such as CDs and DVDs, and a large number
of other everyday items.
Polyurethanes are an integral part of many aspects of daily life. Their broad application range
extends from mattresses, automobile seats, refrigerator insulation and car bumpers, to shoe
soles. The key product brands used here are Arcol, Acclaim®, Hyperlite®, Ultracel®, Softcel®
and Softcel® V, Multranol®, Mondur®, Bayflex® and Bayfill®.
Thermoplastic polyurethanes unite the properties of high-grade polyurethane elastomers with the

are used in technical films and textile coatings, belts, hoses, cables and profiles, in the
automotive sector (interior, exterior, chassis), in a multitude of applications in sports & leisure
(e.g. ski and sport shoes and sport equipment) and last but not least in agriculture, mechanical
engineering and industrial applications.
