From circular bridges to custom manholes – 3D printing is a reality with high-performance materials.

Enabling the transition to a circular infrastructure

From circular bridges to manholes – 3D printing becomes a reality with high-performance materials. As the infrastructure industry looks for new ways to tackle challenges such as the need for circular concepts, customized solutions, shorter and more flexible, 3D printing holds the answer to many of these. And Covestro high performance materials have cleared the last hurdle for industrial production, as our engineering-grade materials provide the right properties and features that these demanding applications require.
