Quality and environmental management
As a leading global supplier of methacrylate chemistry, Evonik Industries guarantees the highest quality and reliability in its branded products. Our safe and eco-friendly production is carried out in certified facilities using approved substances. Evonik has an “integrated” management system for environmental protection, safety, and quality, and is certified according to the globally valid ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards.
More than 50 years of experience for our customers
Evonik has been producing DEGADUR® reactive resins from its own raw materials (methacrylates) at the Hanau site for more than half a century and markets them through an international network of partner companies and firms specializing in industrial and commercial flooring. Methacrylate chemistry is among the company’s core business areas. Methacrylate-based specialties include, for example, Evonik’s PMMA acrylic sheet products, known worldwide under the PLEXIGLAS® brand name (ACRYLITE® in North America).
Environment, Safety, Health and Quality policy
As a company committed to responsible care, we regard environmental and natural resources protection as being among the most important challenges in securing the future. Flooring systems containing DEGADUR® have been certified by independent institutions. In 2013 the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) certified the DEGADUR® reaction resins of Evonik Industries AG with an environmental product declaration. This testifies to the sustainability of DEGADUR® impartially, transparently, and in a way that can be reliably verified, in the form of a life cycle assessment that focuses on transparency over the entire product life cycle. The environmental indicators assessed include global warming potential and ozone degradation potential as well as energy and raw material consumption.
