The Coating Additives Business Line of Evonik
extended its existing long-standing partnership with DKSH.
In addition to distributing the liquid additive portfolio, DKSH has been appointed to distribute Evonik’s specialty silica products to the coatings and printing ink market in South East Asia.
Under the agreement, DKSH will market and distribute Evonik’s complete silica range to its coatings and ink customer base in Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, and Cambodia. Evonik already entrusts DKSH with its full specialty coatings additives portfolio in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
The performance range of Evonik silicas includes AEROSIL fumed silica which is used as a rheology additive; ACEMATT precipitated silica, which is used as matting agent; and SIPERNAT, which can be used as performance filler to partly replace TiO2 pigment as an opacifier.
“DKSH is the ideal partner to market Evonik’s range of silicas in South East Asia due to its extensive market coverage and successful track record in the worldwide distribution of products to the coatings & printing ink industry,” said Ramon J. Viñas, VP, global specialty chemicals, performance materials, DKSH.
