Shanghai, China – Covestro's Cardyon carbon dioxide-based polyol is being used in a walkway between two buildings at the company's Asia-Pacific Innovation Center in Shanghai.
It is 66m long and 1.2m wide, and uses a binder formulated by Inov that includes Cardyon. The walkway is designed to be brightly coloured, and resist yellowing with age.
The company claims this is the first time that the material has been used in this type of flooring application in China. Covestro and Shangdong Inov New Materials worked together on the project.
'The efforts of our Chinese colleagues together with Inov are an important step towards increasing awareness of the application possibilities,’ said Daniel Meyer, head of Covestro's polyurethane business unit. ‘Our goal is to continuously reduce our CO2 footprint and to align our business sustainability to the circular economy.'
