Polycarbonate specialty films are a highly versatile material used in various applications such as passports.
Polycarbonate specialty films are a highly versatile material used in various applications such as passports.

German based materials manufacturer Covestro will provide polycarbonate specialty films in Guangzhou, China. For this purpose, the current polycarbonate sheets production lines at the site will be either closed or re-functioned and state-of-the-art specialty films production will be added.

Polycarbonate specialty films are a highly versatile material used in various applications such as mobile phone housings, government security documents such as passports or in the automotive sector - all of which are strongly growing markets in China.

The production of sheets will stop until end of 2018. By turning the sheets outlet in Guangzhou into a specialty films production site, Covestro leveraged several advantages.

“Firstly, we can meet increasing demand of our customers without the need to build up an entirely new plant with new infrastructure and assets”, said Markus Mingenbach, Head of Specialty Films for the APAC region at Covestro.

 Secondly, we can build on the highly skilled and experienced production employees of the sheets business. This enables us to ramp up production and meet customer demands quickly and efficiently, he continued.

Taking over the Guangzhou site marks a strategically important investment for the Covestro Specialty Films unit. It gives the business an efficient option to grow and serve customer needs in China and APAC.

Covestro announced the divestment of its overall sheets business in March, starting with the sale of its outlet in Sheffield, US. Other outlets in China and EMEA were said to be under investigation. The repurposing of the Guangzhou outlet is thus the next step in this process. It supports Covestro’s strategy to proactively manage its portfolio and focus on its core business.
