Performance Materials

Performance Materials: ever-young classics

The division's ever-young classics are the basis for many modern applications. For example, ITDA increases the cleaning power of surfactants. Potassium hydrogen carbonate not only makes muffins rise sodium-free, and FAVOR superabsorbents keep babies dry worldwide. Performance Materials is also working with partners on new solutions, for example in carbonylation chemistry or for heat storage. The division's high-volume businesses share a common DNA: long-term customer relationships based on high quality, efficiency and reliability. Lean structures coupled with continuous process optimization. Focus on resource-saving production, new specialties and applications. The division supports Evonik's growth with a clear agenda: by stabilizing & increasing cash flow, further developing technologies, securing and expanding sustainable business models and digitization in all areas. This is what Performance Materials stands for!
