Lanxess Appoints Krahn Chemie as Its New Distribution Partner in East Europe

The Lanxess AG, Cologne, Germany, High Performance Elastomers unit has transferred its distribution business in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia to Krahn Chemie Polska Sp. z o.o., Poznan, a daughter of Krahn Chemie GmbH, Hamburg, Germany. The core products of this division are the technical rubber products CR, EVM, NBR and HNBR.

Lanxess is manufacturer of synthetic rubber for the rubber processing industry. The portfolio of the High Performance Elastomers business unit includes Baypren polychloroprene rubber, Therban HNBR, the ethylene-vinyl acetate rubbers Levapren and Levamelt and the NBR types Perbunan, Krynac and Baymod N. The main fields of application for the products are in the areas of automobile manufacturing, mechanical engineering, the construction industry, gas/oil exploration and production, and the electrical and cable industries. The high-performance elastomers are also used as modifiers for raw materials for plastics and adhesives.

"It is important for us to be able to work with a partner who knows, understands and can explain the technical characteristics of our synthetic high-performance rubbers. Only in this way can the processors be sure that they are using a rubber which is ideally suited to their individual requirements," says Martin Kleimeier, Global Distribution Manager High Performance Elastomers at Lanxess. "With its technical distribution strategy, Krahn Chemie is able to fulfill these requirements, and its local sales team and efficient on-site logistics are also advantageous."

"Lanxess is not only one of the global market leaders, it also repeatedly sets new standards in material development and quality," says Jaroslaw Rogalinski, Managing Director of Krahn Chemie Polska. "With the technical rubbers range from Lanxess, we have been able to further expand our portfolio for the rubber processing industry. Hence, we are now in an even better position to be able to supply our customers with the ideal elastomer for every application of their technical rubber products."

In addition to the synthetic rubbers from Lanxess, the Krahn Chemie Polska portfolio for the rubber processing industry also includes epichlorohydrin rubber (ECO), CPE, EPDM, FKM as well as additives and plasticizers.
