Bayer MaterialScience, manufacturer of high-tech polymer materials, has now inaugurated its new coatings, adhesives and specialties laboratory at DuBiotech premises in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This application and development lab will offer local customized technical support to the industry across the Middle East and Africa. DuBiotech is the major life science cluster in the Middle East.

Focussing on key application areas like construction, automotive, industrial, plastic, wood and furniture coatings the laboratory will lead to the development of polyurethane coatings for diverse high performance applications including sealants for construction joints as well as airport tarmacs and solvent free coatings for pipe applications. It is also planned that the Laboratory will provide tailor made solutions to the manufacturers of adhesives and sealants for the transportation, construction, furniture, packaging and shoe industries.

"With this laboratory, Bayer underscores its commitment to the region,” said Bayer Middle East Managing Director Harald Liedtke. “We must adjust our resources accordingly to the market needs,” adds Daniel Meyer, Head of the Coatings, Adhesives, Specialties Business Unit and member of the Executive Committee of Bayer MaterialScience. “We are therefore making targeted investments in the individual regions in order to maintain or further expand our leading market position.”

The lab will work in close cooperation with Bayer’s global competence network having its established laboratories and technical centers in India, China, Japan, Russia, Brazil, USA, Spain and Germany. DuBiotech, offering international standard services and facilities, hosts the state-of-the-art laboratory that is equipped with advanced testing and application equipment, meeting global standards and guidelines.
