We create surfaces

The demands on surfaces in automobiles differ depending on their location. Each of Evonik coating products is designed with the application in mind. Coatings in batteries provide additional safety benefits while maintaining performance. For exterior surfaces, coatings are designed with processing and performance in mind to achieve smooth surfaces and ease of handling. Scratch-resistance surfaces in interiors ensure aesthetics are maintained even under tough circumstances. 


The ACEMATT® product family offers treated and untreated precipitated and thermal silica as matting agents.

The fumed silica based rheology control additives AEROSIL® acts in water- or solventborne coatings as anti-settling, anti-sagging and corrosion resistance agents.

For pre-coated automotive parts the coil coating DYNAPOL® offers very good adhesion to aluminium, steel and galvanized steel.

DYNOL™ is a superwetter providing very good static and dynamic surface tension reduction in waterborne solventborne or solvent-free coatings and inks.

Nourybond® polyamide- and blocked isoyanate-based technologies improve adhesion of PVC and acrylic plastisols to primed metal surfaces.

SURFYNOL® products are defoaming and substrate wetting agents for waterborne coatings.

TEGO® AddBond adhesion resins improve adhesion and flexibility of water- and solventborne coatings on metal and plastics. 

In water,- and solventborne coatings TEGO® Airex improves defoaming and deaeration properties. 

TEGO® Dispers products are used for wetting and dispersing of pigments and fillers in water- and solventborne or high-solid/solvent-free coatings.

VESTAGON® provides UV, stone chip, acid rain and brake fluids resistance to automotive powder coatings

VESTANAT® EP-M grades are silanes for curing at elevated temperatures (>80°C). These grades are used in combination with suitable binders and enable the formulation of highly scratch resistant coatings.

VESTANAT® aliphatic and cycloaliphatic diisocyanate monomers for light stable PUR resins and elastomers as well as cycloaliphatic polyisocyanates for durable 1K and 2K PUR coatings

ZETASPERSE® products are pigment wetting and dispersing agents for waterborne coatings. 

Interior panels & trims

The surface of trims, panels and operational controls made with the microcrystalline TROGAMID® do withstand not only deep and high temperatures, but also contact to aggressive sweat, skin oil, suntan lotion and other cosmetics.

PU Additives


With increasing pressure to reduce emissions within automotive interiors, we continue to invest in the development of new Emission Optimised catalysts, low VOC silicone surfactants and performance additives used in the production of polyurethane foams:

  • Our latest DABCO® Negligible Emission catalysts can help formulators meet challenging OEM requirements, such as VDA278 and provide for excellent physical properties after humid ageing.
  • TEGOSTAB® silicone surfactants can help to improve many aspects of molded foams, for example, regulate cell size, stabilise system or facilitate optimized vibration dampening.
  • Our range of ORTEGOL® Aldehyde Scavengers can notably reduce acetaldehyde and formaldehyde levels, helping you to meet demanding OEM requirements.
  • Evonik offers a variety of GORAPUR® mold release agents for different technologies that enable efficient and economical production lines.



VESTANAT® H12MDI makes car wrapping foils chemical resistant against aggressive agents like acid rain, bird droppings, and gritting salt on the roads.
