BUFA to distribute Covestro’s Maezio thermoplastic tapes

10:00 AM, 20th November 2019

LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY: Covestro AG has entered into a distribution agreement with BUFA Thermoplastic Composites, a supplier of raw materials and semi-finished products for thermoplastic components.

The agreement grants BUFA distribution rights for Maezio™ thermoplastic UD (unidirectional) tapes from Covestro.

This first distribution partnership in Europe for the thermoplastic composite business of Covestro is a response to the growing demand for materials that are designed for lightweight construction yet as robust as metal.

Maezio™ UD tapes are based on a thermoplastic matrix such as polycarbonate, which is strengthened with strands of continuous, oriented carbon or glass fibers. The UD tapes can be laminated together at different angles to form sheets that can be tuned to specific performance targets.

“We’re super excited to introduce BUFA as part of our distribution network around the globe. In the future we want to nurture our mutual exchanges on market trends and customer needs in order to find the best possible solutions for our customers,” said Lisa Ketelsen, head of the thermoplastic composites business of Covestro.

“We’re thrilled to add Maezio™ into our product portfolio. The tapes can be made particularly thin, but have a high stability and are especially light at the same time, which enables the production of complex and three-dimensional components in a wide range of industries,” added Dirk Punke, Managing Director of BUFA Thermoplastic Composites.
