Changhua, Taiwan – Covestro has launched a new range of protective TPU films, Desmopan UP, for “ultimate protection”. The company said they have high durability, adaptability and aesthetics. They are designed to protect automotive surface coatings from harsh environmental conditions, and can also be used to protect wind turbine blades and smartphone screens.
A new production line for high-performance thermoplastic polyurethanes for paint protection films has also been inaugurated by the company. The capacity-expanding line is at its site in Taiwan, and was announced in 2022.
“We are really excited to start our new production line and launch the new Desmopan UP series to meet the increasing demand for high-performance PPF in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world,” said Lisa Ketelsen, head of TPU in the Asia-Pacific region.
