Covestro says that its continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTP) are now branded Maezio.

Covestro produces uni-directional reinforced tapes and sheets based on continuous carbon or glass fibers impregnated with polycarbonate, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) or other thermoplastic resins. They can be thermoformed with existing thermoforming tools at high yield rates and low cycle times. Other production technologies such as hybrid injection molding, automated UD tape laying and automated fiber placement can also be integrated.

Maezio products can also be recycled at the end of their life.
