Switzerland-based Sika has agreed to acquire DuPont's Protective Coatings business in Germany. DuPont's Protective Coatings business develops, produces and sells highly resistant coatings for flooring, concrete and steel under the trademarks Unitherm, Permacor, Epiter, Asplit and Betonol.
Together with the new technology and the Unitherm brand, Sika will be gaining strategically significant access to fire protection applications, which ideally complements its traditional concrete and steel protection businesses, according to the company.
