Krahn is Distributor for Sinopec in Europe
Krahn Chemie GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, and Sinopec Europa Handels GmbH have agreed to work together to distribute styrene butadiene styrene (SBS), styrene ethylene butadiene styrene (SEBS), and styrene isoprene styrene (SIS) in Europe.
Styrene block copolymer (SBC) can be used in a multitude of applications including pressure-sensitive adhesives, hot-melt adhesives, bitumen modifications, and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE-S). The use of SBC considerably improves the elastic recovery of pressure-sensitive and hot-melt adhesives and also significantly increases the impact resistance of plastics.
The two companies intend to develop their cooperation further. Krahn Chemie is also going to be taking over the distribution of other commodities from Sinopec in the coming months.
Sinopec Corp. is one of the largest integrated energy and chemical companies with upstream, midstream and downstream operations in China. Krahn Chemie belongs to the Otto Krahn group and specializes in the sales, distribution, and marketing of chemical raw materials and speciality chemicals.
