Biesterfeld and Laurel Products Sign Distribution Agreement
Distributor Biesterfeld Spezialchemie GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, has assumed control of the distribution of fluoropolymer additives for most of the European market on behalf of American company Laurel Products, LLC, Elverson, PA.This includes distribution in the DACH region as well as Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. The agreement applies to product lines marketed under the Ultraflon, Marzon and Thor trade names.
Laurel Products specialises in the production of micronised fluoropolymer additives based on polytetrafluoroethylene, fluorinated ethylene propylene and perfluoroalkoxy polymers. These are offered in powder form as well as in various carrier fluids and can be used in coatings, lubricants, plastics and other substances. The additives improve abrasion resistance, which reduces wearing and offers temporary protection from corrosion. In addition, their application in plastics helps to optimise form stability.
Dr. Martin Liebenau, Marketing Manager at Biesterfeld Spezialchemie, views cooperation with Laurel Products as an ideal opportunity to further expand the offer for our customers: "The advanced range of Laurel Products has already been selling very successfully on the American market. We look forward to developing the distribution of this diverse portfolio across much of Europe. Initial inquiries for samples already indicate great interest among our customers."
