Covestro can now offer materials that meet the rigorous "Good Manufacturing Practice" (GMP) standards also in the Asia-Pacific region. At its site in Changhua, Taiwan, the company will produce Desmopan GMP, a line of TPU that meet the high demands and requirements for food contact applications, such as conveyor belts, food containers, potable water appliances, as well as toys and orthodontic and healthcare applications.


“We are happy to meet all stringent GMP requirements in our Changhua site. This allows us to broaden our product portfolio and offer our Desmopan GMP product range also to our customers in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Dr. Andrea Maier-Richter, Head of TPU at Covestro.


Covestro will offer GMP grade TPU, which meets requirements for food contact and healthcare applications, in Asia Pacific.

The Desmopan GMP portfolio offers durable, high-performance materials that resist erosion, abrasion and fatigue. They are water-resistant and can withstand regular wiping without degradation over time.


Their dimensional stability, flexibility, and durability make them ideal for applications under forces of various kinds, such as dental aligners that withstand the forces of teeth movement without breaking or cracking.


Additionally, they meet regulatory compliance for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, such as EU10/2011 (Text with EEA relevance), and FDA regulations in 21 CFR 177.1680 (Polyurethane resins) and 21 CFR 177.2600 (Rubber articles intended for repeated use).


“Besides adhering to rigorous food contact and health and safety standards, our Changhua production site is already ISCC PLUS certified,” added Lisa Ketelsen, Head of TPU in APAC, Covestro. “This means that products from our Changhua site will help our customers reach their sustainability targets, since we can offer our new grades in mass balanced versions that contain alternative feedstock. This reduces their carbon footprint while keeping the same properties or performance as fossil-based materials.”
