The paint stays put

Painted buldings, road signs, and train cars - the cost of the routine damage caused by graffiti artist is high.  Evonik has developed VESTANAT® MF, a highly  efficient crosslinker for paint systems that forms a lasting barrier against chemical cleaning agents.

Hygienically clean

Especially in the Asian market, Evonik’s Crosslinkers Business Line, with VESTASOL® IP provides  the synthetic cornerstone for the production of disinfectants based on the antiseptic chloroxylenol (PCMX), ensures germ-free hands for healthcare professionals. 

Dosen Konserven

Inner linings for tin cans

It’s a staple of our daily lives and available in any supermarket: the tin can, invincible container for any kind of food. Unfortunately, the basic raw material used for these - bisphenol A, or BPA - poses health risks and, as such, has been a subject of public controversy for some time. This is where Evonik’s Crosslinkers business line comes into play.



Let your floor breathe

For 20 years now, leading floor coating manufacturers  have chosen Epilink® 701 to formulate breathable coating and self-leveling floor systems. When tallied up, it’s the equivalent squared meters of floor coating to cycling more than ten times around Earth’s equator on a one meter wide bicycle path.

Cross-border combination: When epoxy resin meets cement concrete

Can an excellent ECC system be produced simply by  mixing the key materials together? Obviously not. Excellent performance comes from scientific formulation design and the synergy of the key materials: epoxy resin and curing agent. This is where Evonik’s business 
line Crosslinkers comes in with its waterbased epoxy  curing agent Anquamine® 287 and waterbased epoxy resin emulsion Ancarez® AR-468.

sun protection

Sunscreen basics

Sunlight puts us in a good mood and is important  for our health. Like so many other things, however, dosage is critical. VESTASOL®, which is to a large part made from isophorone,  Evonik’s Crosslinkers business line offers cosmetic actives manufacturers a basic material for producing highly active UVB filters.



Seal it to keep it

I’m going to drive this car until it rusts away: That’s the  intention of some car owners anyway, until the technical inspection is due, and the chances of older vehicles being 
approved are not so good.



Flowers for an aluminum frame

Aluminum windows are trending. Considered modern and elegant, they are robust, long-lasting, and easy to maintain. This metal version of the window frame also offers an important safety advantage: the material does not burn.



The future belongs to the lightweights

Automobile manufacturers  and suppliers can use VESTALITE® products from  Evonik Resource Efficiency to produce customized, cost-effective, high-performance fiber composite components whose excellent surface characteristics and outstanding mechanical properties make them suitable replacements for steel and aluminum.

Cure-to-Go for the floor

Regardless the factory building, warehouse, car  park or office suite – industrial floors have to withstand a lot more than conventional floors in your homes.The new waterborne

Brücke, Meer

Rust doesn't stand a chance

They cross rivers, valleys, roads, and railroad tracks; they are landmarks, tourist attractions, or just a way to get from one place to another. There are around 140,000 bridges in Germany, 40,000 of which are on freeways and federal highways. Making supporting rods from fiberglass- reinforced polymer based on Ancamine® R can help prepare bridges for the future.

The future belongs to the wind

On coastal plains, on the high seas, or in the mountains - wind turbines are everywhere. During their service life of ten or more years, the blades will have to withstand many weather extremes and survive sunlight, storms and rain.
