Brenntag, Evonik Strike Product Distribution Agreement

MONDAY, JULY 10, 2023

Chemical and ingredients distributor Brenntag recently announced that it signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Evonik for its silane compound-based building protection products. As of last month, Brenntag is distributing the Protectosil product in Germany.

“Surface protection, such as against graffiti or corrosion damage, is of great importance in the construction industry, as it can reduce maintenance costs and extend the life of buildings by decades,” said Alain Kavafyan, Business Manager, Coatings & Construction, Brenntag DACH.

“That's why I'm very pleased that together with Evonik we can offer our customers in Germany another high-quality product line in this area, too, to improve and protect their construction projects to a high standard.”

According to the release, Protectosil are silane systems based on silicon that are used as protective coatings for building surfaces. The molecules penetrate into the fabric of buildings to protect structures made of reinforced concrete from damage and decay, as well as attain durability and resistance of mineral building surfaces.

“Especially in the German construction industry, which is dominated by medium-sized companies, more and more suppliers are focusing on sustainable and climate-friendly construction. Protectosil can make a noticeable contribution to this,” said Natalie Zeisel, Channel Manager EMEA of Evonik's Silanes Business Line.

“That is why we are very pleased to be working even more closely with our long-standing partner Brenntag in the future. Together, we can offer even easier access to our high-quality building protection solutions for companies that differentiate themselves from the competition by being more sustainable.”

Brenntag says that Protectosil can be applied for hydrophobing to graffiti protection and facade cleaning to stone consolidation of classic natural stone. Additionally, it reportedly increases service life of protected buildings and bridges, as well as fully meet high sustainability requirements.
