Producer and marketer of titanium dioxide pigments Kronos is teaming up with specialty chemicals and ingredients distributor DKSH’s Performance Materials business unit to distribute its range for coatings and plastic applications in the Asia Pacific region.

According to the press release, Kronos has entrusted DKSH to grow its specialty chemicals business in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the Philippines.
