    Car Paint
    Car Paint

    We help you make a dazzling entrance wherever you go. Our coating additives for car paints lend brilliance of color and gorgeous gloss to your paintwork. And not just a couple of times around the block, but with lasting protection for the long haul. So whatever the weather or the rough and tumble of daily life throw at you, it just runs off without a trace.

    Monuments
    Monuments

    We fight the ravages of time so that future generations can enjoy monuments in all their glory. Our treatment with water repellents prevents moisture from penetrating and causing damage. This impregnation process makes it easier to clean algae and moss off historic buildings as well as poets, thinkers and equestrians immortalized in stone. And the same goes for unwanted “artworks,” since some of our products also protect against graffiti.

  • more fuel-efficient
    Car Tires
    Car Tires

    We teach your car to be less thirsty. Fit your wheels with energy-saving tires and watch fuel consumption drop by up to eight percent. With the Silica/Silane-technology from Evonik in your treads, gas-guzzling rolling resistance decreases while traction and wet grip are simultaneously increased. So it’s only the pump attendant who’ll get into a spin when you drive past yet again without needing to fill up.

  • more fade-resistant
    Stadium Seats
    Stadium Seats

    We make sure there are no faders in the stadium. With triacetonamine derivatives added to the material mix, seats can weather not only countless visitors and thunderous soccer celebrations but also the sun’s UV rays – an opponent that makes its presence felt for far longer than just 90 minutes.

  • more absorbent
    Diapers
    Diapers

    We make a very “absorbing” contribution to the science of infant hygiene. Inside diapers, our superabsorbents are capable of locking away up to 500 times their weight in liquid. As an added bonus, this translates into smaller diapers that now weigh less than half what they did in the eighties.

    Mattresses
    Mattresses

    We help make beds you’ll want to lie in. Our additives for polyurethane flexible foams take comfort to a whole new level. Sink into a viscoelastic mattress and you’ll soon be sinking into a deep, dream-filled sleep. What’s more, our formulas also let upholstered furniture and car seats mold themselves perfectly to your body.

  • breathable
    Contact Lenses
    Contact Lenses

    We show you the world in a new light – almost without you noticing. That’s because breathable contact lenses are incredibly comfortable to wear. High purity hydroxyethyl methacrylate from Evonik ensures oxygen permeability and high water uptake. With the result that you’ll hardly blink an eye over your improved vision.

    Food
    Food

    We make animal feeds greener. Our amino acids help animals extract more nutritional value from what they eat. This not only means that the amount of added protein can be scaled back but also that animals need less food overall. And that in turn brings numerous benefits for the food security of our ever more populous planet: nitrogen and CO2 emissions are reduced along with the global need for acreage, water and energy.

  • fluffier
    Towels
    Towels

    We give you that warm, fuzzy feeling. Softeners from Evonik make textiles irresistibly soft and fluffy. Permanently incorporated into fabrics or yarns, they enhance the wearing comfort of sportswear, towels and other textiles as well as their ability to absorb moisture.

    Tablets
    Tablets

    We deliver active ingredients to where they’re needed. Evonik’s pharmaceutical polymers act as tablet coatings that protect medication on its journey through the body before releasing it at the desired location. Thanks to these “pharma taxis,” even the time and duration of the release can be controlled. Our colloidal silicon dioxide ensures that active ingredients are evenly distributed, resulting in a consistent dosage with each tablet.

  • insulated
    Refrigerators
    Refrigerators

    We make your fridge frugal. With over 50 additives for polyurethane rigid foams, we enhance the insulating properties of materials used in fridges and freezers as well as building facades. The result? Energy consumption and CO2 emissions are put on a diet – along with your electricity bill. And our passion for keeping things lean doesn’t stop there. Thanks to fumed silica, insulating elements can now be made slimmer than ever before. That means more storage space for greens and fruits as well as milkshakes and cakes.
