Tolsa Expands into the U.S.
Tolsa Group, Madrid, Spain, a supplier of specialized additives for the wire and cable and electronics industries, has announced the expansion of its specialty additives business into the U.S.
Tolsa Group is a leading supplier of high-performance flame retardant and thermal insulation synergists. The ADINS® range of additives are based on a breakthrough technology using natural silicates, offering tailored performance benefits, improved processability, and reduced cost. The ADINS range of additives combines a very high surface area and special morphology with a tailored functionalization which provides adaptable solutions for wire and cable and electronics uses. With sepiolite as a carrier, the flame retardant dosage can be reduced, thus decreasing the overall cost.
Tolsa serves the U.S. market through a commercial sales office in Suwanee, Georgia. “With our broad product portfolio we are firmly positioned as a strategic supplier to the U.S. region,” said Pablo Dalmau, special additives business unit director for Tolsa. “Our innovative technology has been validated in Europe and we’ve seen strong results that we expect to translate into new markets in the U.S. and also Japan.”
Available in the U.S., ADINS additives are sold as a powder or can be supplied as a masterbatch. As part of its U.S. expansion, Tolsa is exploring new commercial channels including independent distributor arrangements. The company is also working with independent technical consultants to expand its application development efforts.
