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.
Evonik's strength is diversity
Our experts in fiber-reinforced composites think "systems," not "products". Even in cases of applications where products from their own department are not the material of choice, our experts involve the specialists from other departments to identify the optimal solution for the customer. According to the philosophy: when you work with us, you have the support of the entire team of specialists at Evonik. In short, you talk to one, you talk to all.
Lightweight construction and weight reduction are driving elements in many areas of industry. The latest lightweight designs use Evonik technologies for composite and sandwich components.
With various raw materials and additives from Evonik, composites are incredibly stable despite their light weight. Used in the aerospace, automotive and wind turbine industries, these components are already reliable companions on the road to lightness. And also to an improved quality of life: Evonik has developed an innovative product to optimize prostheses that opens up many new opportunities for people with physical disabilities.
500 HP with lightness on the rear axle? Products from Evonik already allow steel drive shafts to be replaced by shafts made from composite materials. This not only saves weight, but also space, since the composite is more stable than conventional steel with less thickness.
