Brenntag expands agreement with Arkema for distribution of waterborne resins in Canada 28th January 2020
Brenntag (WKN A1DAHH), the global market leader in chemical and ingredients distribution, will become the primary distributor for Arkema Inc. waterborne resins in Canada. The expansion of this distribution agreement will follow a similar transition to the launch of the initial agreement covering the United States earlier in 2019.
The product lines include over 45 waterborne resins and are often used in adhesives, caulks and sealants, construction products, architectural paints, traffic coatings, and industrial coatings applications. The relevant tradenames are:
- Encor® – acrylic, styrene-acrylic, and vinyl acrylic.
- Celocor® – opaque polymer, a highly efficient, voided latex product that improves hiding and whiteness in paints and coatings.
- Neocar® – vinyl versatate.
- Snap® – structured nano-acrylic polymer.
“Brenntag’s ability to market, deliver, and support products in industries where technical expertise is required was a defining factor in making this decision,” Kenny Messer, regional president for Arkema’s coating resins business in North America explained. “They have the resources and expertise needed to help our customers get the most from their waterborne resin products.”
“We are excited for Brenntag Canada to enter into this relationship and to represent Arkema for this innovative and technically advanced product line in Canada. This collaboration enables Arkema and Brenntag to provide solutions and additional value to our customers while leveraging our dedicated technical resources,” noted Lars Schneider, President, Brenntag Canada.
