The cooperation includes the promotion of a range of partly bio-based alkyd emulsions as well as alkyd urethane dispersions and covers the sales regions Germany, Austria and the Netherlands.
Ecoat has set itself the goal of developing competitive and high-performing products for the coatings industry that are tailored to the needs of the market and at the same time show as much bio-based or rather renewable ingredients as possible. The bio-based alkyd emulsions which are marketed under the brand name Secoia are particularly used for architectural and wood paints. The brand Inokem includes both water-based alkyd emulsions primarily for eco-friendly decorative coatings as well as alkyd urethane dispersions especially used for decorative wood and metal coatings.
“The cooperation with Ecoat is an important part of our strategy to further focus on the aspect of sustainability in our future activities,” said Cristian Groenewegen, managing director KRAHN Chemie Benelux and responsible in the KRAHN Chemie Group Management Board for Sustainability.
“KRAHN Chemie distinguishes itself through its key position, high competence and technical understanding in the field of coatings and paints," added Nicolas Florent, GM and business director at Ecoat. "In addition to its well-structured and experienced sales network KRAHN is very well equipped with its two technical service centers specializing in a wide range of tests of paints and coatings."
