German materials manufacturer Covestro recently announces that it has opened a VOC testing laboratory in its Polymer Research and Development Center in Shanghai.

The company said that the lab will enable it to test its materials in house, allowing the process to be more efficient and meet increasing customer demands and regulations, particularly in China.

“With this facility, we combine the know-how of formulating our products as well as testing them under one roof,” said Dr. Christian Haessler, Head of PRDC for Covestro.

“That brings us one step closer to being a total solution provider and enables us to react swiftly to customer demands as well as changing regulations with regards to VOCs.”

The PRDC hosts technical development and research facilities for the company’s Polyurethanes, Polycarbonates, and Coatings, Adhesives and Specialties business units.
