It will allow us to provide customers with crosslinkers from our plants in the U.S., Germany, and China,” said Hans-Peter Hauck, head of the Methacrylates Business Line in the Performance Materials Segment.
“In the future, we will be able to provide methacrylate crosslinkers for the US market out of Mobile plant,” added Grant Lafontaine, general manager of the Application and Bulk Monomers Product Lines in the U.S. “We will thereby significantly improve our flexibility and responsiveness for the benefit of our customers in the US.”
Evonik's VISIOMER crosslinkers are used in many applications such as paints and coatings, composites, and plastics. In the final product, they can improve chemical resistance or technical hardness, for example.
