Solvay Solexis: Distribution Partnership with A. Schulman
Solvay Solexis S.p.A., Bollate, Italy and A. Schulman GmbH, Kerpen, Germany, signed an agreement for the European distribution (with the exception of Italy) of the either fully or partially fluorinated compounds under the tradenames of Solef PVDF, Hylar PVDF, Halar ECTFE and Hyflon PFA/MFA.
Applications and markets for these product lines include the field of electric and electronic, where the inherent flame-retardant properties of the resins and the beneficial dielectric constant and dielectric strength are important, but also food processing equipment, medical equipment and some industrial applications might be areas of application.
The inherent chemical resistance makes these resins the right choice for many parts that are exposed to aggressive chemicals and harsh environments. Cables in off-shore applications and water ducts for high temperature or high-purity water are among the current applications.
With this new distribution line, A. Schulman complements their range of high-performance polymers, while Solvay Solexis will benefit from A. Schulman’s structure of large-scale markets and customers.
