Production in Herne focuses on isophorone chemicals, which are used to produce premium-quality crosslinkers, among other things. The raw materials distinguish themselves in a large number of applications such shiny paints, scratch-resistant and weatherproof automotive coatings, high-quality interior fittings for cars, and solvent-free coatings for industrial flooring. They also provide corrosion protection for bridges, scaffolding or sluices and ensure high stability for the rotor blades on wind turbines, to name but a few examples. With its coatings and adhesive polyesters, Witten also holds a leading position in the Coatings & Additives Business Unit. As binders for the coatings industry, the saturated polyester resins marketed under the DYNAPOL® brand name provide maximum elasticity, ductility, and chemical resistance. Evonik’s Herne/Witten facility is an important industrial location for the region. The investment in a (new) isophorone production line in 2007 not only safeguarded jobs but also created jobs in Herne both directly and indirectly, for example at suppliers.
