Bayer MaterialScience Develops Innovative Solutions for Future Mobility Concepts

Spanish firm Ingeteam has developed charging stations for electric cars in close collaboration with Bayer MaterialScience and Policam.

According to Bayer, the housing is made of polyurethane: robust Baydur 110 rigid polyurethane foam, for the first time. Two different versions of the charging stations are available: one suitable for outdoor installation along public roads and on plazas, and a wall-mounted model for installation in private homes.

Bayer explains that more than 500 prototypes of the charging stations have already been installed at Spanish supermarkets, parking garages, conference and exhibition centres. So far the charging stations are only available in Spain, but expansion to other countries and continents is possible.

“This development is another example of how Bayer develops solutions for future mobility concepts,” says Alp Sarici, a marketing expert for polyurethane systems. “Unlike other plastic solutions, the polyurethane housings can also be produced profitably in small numbers, not least because the moulds are relatively inexpensive.”

Bayer says it was involved in the development from the very beginning. The collaboration with Ingeteam was arranged by Policam, the manufacturer of the charging station housings.
