Luggage Made Lighter and More Secure Thanks to Covestro Polycarbonate
Luggage gets dragged through parking lots and airports, thrown into cars, dropped and smashed. That’s a lot of abuse to withstand, and some materials simply can’t hold up. Makrolon® polycarbonate from Covestro helps to keep your personal items protected and securely inside your luggage without adding additional weight.
Lighter and more durable luggage makes traveling less of a hassle. To achieve this, travel goods manufacturer Andiamo Luggage teamed up with Covestro to develop a special polycarbonate plastic for suitcases.
This new Makrolon® polycarbonate grade debuts in Andiamo Luggage’s Pantera Collection.
The Covestro material is used for the hard, yet lightweight shell of the travel bag. Offering impressive design freedom and a wide range of color options, this plastic was a great fit for the luxurious and fashionable travel bag.
The polycarbonate systems imparts smooth-touch and scratch-resistant properties to the bag’s outer shell, setting it apart from other, similar materials. Thanks to Makrolon® polycarbonate, Andiamo Luggage is able to provide its customers with a lightweight, stylish and highly durable travel bag to accompany them wherever their travels take them.
The main properties of Makrolon® polycarbonate grades are:
- High performance
- Scratch resistance
- Ability to be colored
- Light weight
