Smart Materials: Smart solutions

The Smart Materials division includes businesses with innovative materials that enable resource-saving solutions and replace conventional materials.

The products are continuously developed and adapted to the needs of the customers. They are the smart answer to the major challenges of our time: environment, energy efficiency, mobility and health.

The Smart Materials division's strong technology platforms pave the way to greater resource efficiency and sustainability: Inorganic materials with superior properties such as silica, silanes, peroxides and specialty catalysts, and high-performance polymers such as polyamide 12, polyimide, special polybutadienes and polyesters as well as compounds, composites and membranes based on them.

Smart materials are developed and produced in six business lines that contribute to helping people to live a good and sustainable life, today and tomorrow.

With a unique combination of innovativeness, responsibility and customer focus, the division enables its customers and partners to take new, sustainable and smart approaches. This makes Smart Materials a driver of Evonik's profitable growth.
