Ltd, Ulsan, Korea, and its distributor United Trading System (UTS) have signed a long-term cooperation agreement to supply the Russian petrochemical company, Sibur with additives used in polypropylene, polyethylene, rubbers, thermoplastic rubbers and PVC. Under the agreement, Songwon will also provide Sibur with technical support for stabilizers in end-use applications.
The agreement will be effective until the end of 2015 and was signed by Dieter Morath, Executive Vice President of Songwon International AG, Lars Hjorth, Managing Director of UTS Scandinavia AB and Sibur's Kirill Maksimov, Director for Chemicals Procurement. As part of the cooperation, the parties will also engage in developing and implementing joint projects aimed at improving polymer properties.

Commenting on the cooperation, Dieter Morath said: “By leveraging Songwon's technical service excellence, we can develop on-demand and provide our customer SIBUR with products that help improve the quality of their end products and protect polymers from temperature, mechanical stress, UV radiation and other exposures.”
