Covestro has inaugurated a new production line for high-performance TPUs that will be used for production of paint protection films (PPF). The new line is located at the company’s existing site in Changhua, Taiwan region. The investment and the expansion of its production capacities for high-performance TPUs at the site had been announced in 2022.


At the inauguration of the new line, the company also launched its new DesmopanUP TPU series. UP stands for “Ultimate Protection”. The series offers high durability, adaptability and aesthetics, protecting automotive surface coatings from harsh environmental conditions. The material can also be used to protect wind blades or screens of smart devices.


Covestro inaugurates new production line of high performance TPU suited for PPF grades.

“We are convinced that our customers and the TPU market enquire not just materials suppliers, but partners to jointly develop solutions. We at Covestro have the capabilities to be such a partner,” stated Dr. Andrea Maier-Richter, Head of TPU at Covestro. “We strive to collaborate with our customers and along the value chain to unlock the potential of DesmopanUP and meet the growth ambitions of core industries such as automotive and wind.”


The global PPF market is projected to grow steadily until 2030, with the Asia-Pacific region accounting for the largest share of the overall market. The expected growth in that region in turn is driven in large part by the growth of the Chinese market. At the same time, North America and Europe are showing solid growth projections as well.


New TPU-based PPF solutions provide long-lasting protection for automotive surface coatings.

The high interest in the material stems mostly from increasing attention of vehicle owners to the aesthetic condition of vehicles and particularly their surfaces. TPU is a performance benchmark in PPF for quality, long-term aesthetics and surface integrity. Covestro is one of the biggest international suppliers of TPU resins for PPF production.


In PPF, the choice of materials and its formulation plays a decisive role. Covestro said that it has put years of research into formulation and advanced manufacturing technologies to build the basis for the DesmopanUP-based TPUs for PPF.


It provides UV durability, hydrolysis and chemical resistance, as well as optical clarity. This ensures long-lasting performance, weather resistance, and impact resistance. In addition, DesmopanUP allows PPF to adapt to the complex designs and surfaces of different vehicles quickly and easily.
