Automotive & Transportation coatings

Evonik offers a variety of unique additives, co-binders, and resins that provide a multitude of benefits to all layers (incl. electrodeposition (ED) coat, primer/surfacer, base coat, and clear coat) of automotive OEM coating systems as well as refinish and other transportation applications. Our product solutions address the ongoing and demanding trends and drivers in the automotive and transportation coatings markets: reducing VOCs; increasing the use of waterborne, high solids, and solvent-free coatings over traditional solventborne technologies; implementing compact processes; eliminating defects; and reducing overall waste and energy.

Automotive OEM Coatings

Our additives and resins enable the use of high-performance, low-VOC waterborne, solventborne, and high solids automotive OEM coatings by optimizing the automotive coating formulation, application process, and final coating system, thus improving coating performance and environmental friendliness while reducing cost. Our products provide benefits to all layers of automotive OEM coatings: electrodeposition coating, primer/surfacer, base coat, and clear coat.

Automotive refinish coatings

Our additives, resins, and co-binders enable the use of high-performance, low-VOC waterborne, solventborne, and high solids automotive refinish coatings by optimizing the automotive coating formulation, application process, and final coating system, thus improving coating performance and environmental friendliness while reducing cost. Our products provide benefits to all layers of automotive refinish coatings: primer/surfacer, base coat, and clear coat.
