DKSH Business Unit Performance Materials has become an exclusive partner for Keyland Polymer to grow its presence and market share for its portfolio of resins.
The partnership will cover Europe, India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand.
Under the agreement, DKSH will provide exclusive distribution for Keyland Polymer’s innovative UV curable resins, with a focus on the powder coatings market.
The UV resins are used in powder coatings for metals, plastics, carbon fiber and composites, and are particularly well suited for heat-sensitive applications where process and curing temperatures cannot exceed 130°C.
This collaboration will allow powder coatings producers to access a new technology to apply their products in substrates that were not previously accessible to traditional high-temperature curing systems.
“DKSH’s strong sales channel and customer network will enable us to expand the market for our product line of UV cured solid resins for powder coatings," said Michael Knoblauch, president of Keyland Polymer Material Science, LLC and director of Keyland Polymer UV Materials Spain.
