The Worms site houses production facilities of the Performance Polymers Business Unit of Evonik Industries AG.
Worms produces methacrylates, used in many areas of life. The base and specialty monomers produced in Worms are used by customers in the manufacture of paints and coatings, adhesives, oil additives, plastics, and contact lenses, to mention only a few examples.
Monomers are also the base materials for production of standard and specialty PMMA molding compounds used in optoelectronics and communication technology as well as in the automotive, construction, and lighting industries.
