Brenntag, Arkema Expand Resin Distribution

FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2022

Chemical and ingredients distributor Brenntag recently announced that it will become a waterborne acrylic resin distributor for specialty chemicals company Arkema in Mexico. The partnership, which is an expansion of the previous agreements in the United States and Canada, became effective in March.

The company reports that after years of successful collaboration in North America, the distribution relationship with Arkema has expanded in Mexico under the Encor, Celocor, Snap and Neocar brands. Additionally, the agreement is reportedly a result of years of experiences in product distribution, working with formulators, industry knowledge and market intelligence.

These waterborne acrylic resins are reportedly used in applications such as adhesives, caulks and sealants, construction products, architectural paints, traffic coatings and industrial coatings. According to Brenntag’s release, each product falling under these trade names provides unique benefits to these industries:

  • Encor - acrylic, styrene-acrylic and vinylic acrylic;
  • Celocor - opaque polymer, a highly efficient, voided latex product that improves hiding and whiteness in paints and coatings;
  • Neocar - vinyl versatate; and
  • Snap - structured nano-acrylic polymer.

“We are honored to expand our relationship with Arkema as we join efforts to offer our customers in Mexico with innovative and sustainable solutions,” said Diego Pierotty Sr., Director Material Science of Brenntag in Latin America. “Our commitment to provide high-performance solutions with superior service and technical support will enable Brenntag and Arkema to keep adding value to our industry for many years.”

“Arkema is committed to implementing the best possible distribution options for our customers in all markets and regions,” said Eric Dumain, Global Marketing Director, Coating Resins, at Arkema. “Based on our history working with Brenntag in other regions, we are confident they will help us accomplish this and anticipate a smooth transition for our customers.”
