Rehau proudly wins the German Innovation Award 2024

Rehau proudly received the German Innovation Award 2024 for its innovative RAUKANTEX eco and evo edgeband range. The product reveals the perfect amalgamation of sustainable and innovative ideas and it has correctly won the award in “Excellence in Business to Business: Material & Surfaces” category.

The German Innovation Award awards products, technologies and services that break new, innovative ground and offer solutions that stand out due to their added value for users and the environment. This award acknowledged the company’s holistic approach to increasing the use of recycled materials and non-fossil polymers and reducing CO2 emissions.

RAUKANTEX eco is an absolutely innovative product. It is the first REHAU edgeband with ISCC PLUS certification and the new edgeband return concept. Since April 2024, the entire RAUKANTEX product range made of polypropylene (PP) is compliant to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

Embracing accountability for future generations is ingrained in REHAU’s essence. Sustainability is a cornerstone of our corporate strategy, and RAUKANTEX exemplifies this commitment seamlessly. RAUKANTEX edgebands are one of the oldest product ranges at REHAU and the backbone of our Furniture Solutions product. RAUKANTEX revolves around sustainability, not only in terms of its production but also among our employees when it comes to energy, purchasing and packaging. The company aims to continuously increase the use of recycled material and non-fossil-based polymers and reduce CO2 emissions.

Sustainable and with 100% perfect design – at REHAU, these aren’t mutually exclusive

With RAUKANTEX eco, Rehau has developed an edgeband that is made of 50% post-industrial recycled materials and in no way falls short of a classic PP edge in terms of design, quality and processing.


RAUKANTEX evo is the company’s first edgeband on the market with ISCC PLUS certification. Using the mass balance procedure, Rehau can guarantee the efficiency of the product. RAUKANTEX evo can be processed like a “standard PP edgeband” and has the same quality characteristics. And it matches the surface just as perfectly as our existing RAUKANTEX edgebands.
