Bayer MaterialScience LLC Key Developments

Bayer Materialscience Joins Project with Powder Coatings Solutions and Creative Pultrusions to Develop an Integrated Pultrusion and Coating Process

Creative Pultrusions, Inc. and Powder Coating Solutions have invited Bayer MaterialScience LLC to team up with them to develop an integrated pultrusion and coating process. The collaboration will draw on the companies' diverse strengths: Creative Pultrusions' technical talent and fifteen years of experience pultruding polyurethane resins, Powder Coating Solutions' powder coating technology, and Bayer's high-performance resins. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often need high performance polyurethane resins when producing pultruded profiles for demanding outdoor applications. The properties of powder-coated pultruded polyurethane parts make them useful in a range of industries and applications, including pipe pilings, cross arms, and telephone poles. The traditional manufacturing process for pultruded polyurethane profiles requires multiple manufacturing steps and extra handling to pultrude the part and then to coat the finished product to avoid UV degradation. To help OEMs save time and money without sacrificing the integrity of the end product, the team is working to streamline the process. Bayer brings to the project a strong resin with high pultrusion line speed. Powder Coating Solutions specializes in the processes and equipment for powder coating of nonconductive substrates, and also supplies a variety of powder coating products. The enhanced system puts Powder Coating Solutions' Pultrucoater, equipment in line with pultrusion equipment, enabling the process of pultruding, powder coating, and part cutting to occur in one continuous operation.

Bayer and Bluesign Enter into Alliance for Sustainable Coated Textiles

Bayer MaterialScience and bluesign technologies ag have entered into a strategic alliance for sustainable coated textiles. The objective is to ensure safe production processes and working conditions along the entire value chain. Bayer MaterialScience recently set a milestone in innovative and sustainable textile coating with the introduction of INSQIN, an integrated and complete package for the textile industry based on waterborne polyurethane technology. The package encompasses all aspects of materials development, right through to production by certified manufacturers. This approach redefines the idea of collaboration within the value chain. The bluesign system gives consideration to substance lists with restricted use and advises manufacturers on how to minimize hazards to people and the environment. By jointly using the system, participants can cut costs along the processing chain and meet new market demands more quickly.
