The Orgasol and Rilsan D products are high performance coating additives, designed mainly for liquid and UV coatings. Based on Arkema’s specialty polyamide chemistry, these high-performance additives improve multiple performance aspects of the formulation, such as abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, gloss reduction, hardness, and also texture creation. These products are used in multiple market segments, such as coil, wood, automotive, electronics, and transfer paper.
“The Orgasol and Rilsan D product ranges are a good fit with the Palmer Holland organization,” said Josh Gingras, North American business manager, Arkema.
“It has been a pleasure partnering with Arkema’s Specialty Polyamides Team over the past 10 years,” added Ron Zmich, VP of Sales at Palmer Holland. “We look forward to contributing to continued growth in this product space for years to come across this expanded service footprint.”
