      Shaping the future with intelligent solutions
      In the fast-paced world of electronics, IT and communications technologies, it’s all about the race for what’s next.

      On January 8-11, all eyes were on CES 2019 – the global stage for the latest consumer product technologies. And that’s where you found Covestro, your materials innovation partner. We’re shaping the future by empowering the emerging and established companies that design, engineer and manufacture next-gen consumer technologies.

      Our polycarbonates and polycarbonate blends are the materials of choice for electronics. By offering a balanced combination of properties – high flowability, stiffness, toughness, heat resistance, flame retardance and good aesthetics – these polycarbonates help tomorrow’s trends materialize.

      From 5G to smart home to what’s new in wearables, here’s what we saw at CES:
