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.
