The 144 wall elements made of Makrolon® weighed 26 tons alone.
The mobility of tomorrow – Covestro showed newest materials and concepts for the automotive and transport sector. A design study of a car model was taken from the second dimension to the third. It took many hours to print this life-size model in 3D, to shape it, paint it, put the individual parts together and it was also furnished with electronic steering.
Innovation you can touch
At a glance
Courageous, curious, colorful – there were touchable innovations at the K in the areas of automotive, construction, health & cosmetics, fashion, sports and electronics. Covestro showed their latest materials and concepts. At the Sample Bar the versatile properties of the materials could be observed at close proximity. There was a theme on each of the eight exhibition days, which was handled particularly intensively. Related to these, there were podium discussions, presentations and award ceremonies.
