Materials manufacturer Covestro has worked with Shandong INOV New Materials Co., Ltd., a materials manufacturer and engineering contractor of plastics sport floorings, to complete the laying of a walkway using CO2-based material cardyon® at Covestro’s Asia-Pacific Innovation Center in Shanghai. It marks a new breakthrough in the use of Covestro’s cardyon® polyols in the field of plastic runways. It’s the first case in China where the innovative CO2-based material has been used to produce sports floorings.
