Certain Covestro IPDI and HDI products encounter force majeure

Recently, Covestro issued a letter stating that the Leverkusen plant's isophoron diisocyanat (IPDI) and hexamethylene were caused by an accidental fire caused by Covestro IPDI and HDI in a cooling supplier in a German chemical park. The production of Hexamethyfendiisocyanat (HDI) and related derivatives of curing agents will be restricted due to force majeure. So far, it is still hard to estimate how long these effects will last.

In addition, Covestro also stated that during this period it is expected that it will not be able to meet all the ordering requirements in the next few months. We are currently doing our best to deal with the current adverse effects.
