Covestro wants to take advantage of the Sonnenwagen project to test various materials under the harsh climate conditions prevailing along the race’s route. A special focus is on the top clearcoat from PPG, a leading global manufacturer of automotive coatings. It is formulated with the bio-based hardener Desmodur® eco N 7300 from Covestro, 70 percent of whose carbon content is sourced from biomass.
