Understanding all aspects of a complex system 

That's THE KEY 


The fact that composite specialists within Evonik are closely connected to each other across the respective business divisions is an enormous advantage for our customers. A result of this cooperation is the platform that serves to exchange technical information between experts and the group-wide Composites Industry Team. This ensures that specialist knowledge is available to our customers at all locations.


Composite cross sectional view

Evonik Industries manufactures a range of products that can be found in almost all components of fiber-reinforced composites. We supply core materials for sandwich construction, thermoplastic and thermosetting resin matrices, as well as the essential components for matrices such as crosslinkers, catalysts, impact strength modifiers or processing and process additives. Some of these products are used in sizings for glass or carbon fibers, and in adhesives for joining fiber-reinforced composites.
