The demands on us and our solutions have grown continuously over time. In the early days, our primary task was to develop and manufacture suitable materials with specific chemical and physical properties. Polyurethane offers excellent possibilities in this regard, and our materials, such as Sylomer®, Sylodyn® and Sylodamp®, are the mainstay of our portfolio. A variety of applications and new products have come into being as an extension of this, which we can use to respond to any of our customers' requirements effectively and efficiently.
Our in-house research, technical expertise and customer focus are our strengths as much today as they were then. Decades of experience as well as independent follow-up measurements are testament to the fact that our materials are maintenance-free and last for decades, retaining their effectiveness. This makes them truly sustainable. Thanks to their stable properties, it is also easy to reuse our materials, for example in the form of a granulate blending component. What's more, we are already working on developing processes to fully recycle our products to enable us to close the loop entirely.
