“Combining Expancel with Levasil colloidal silica improves the adherence and mechanical properties of the coating without sacrificing elasticity and flexibility, and thanks to its self-cleaning properties it also extends the life of the coating,” he said.
“We have already made this offering available in Asia, Europe and Mexico and have achieved great results, receiving nothing but positive feedback from our customers,” Wilhelm added.
Nouryon will now offer this technology to customers in the US, teaming up with distributor CoadTech – Cool Additives Technology. CoadTech has experience with both product lines and has a long-standing relationship with Nouryon as a distributor for Expancel.
“Creating this technology for the coatings market reflects Nouryon’s strategy of increasing our focus on products that drive profitable growth, while delivering solutions that address the challenges facing our society today,” said Johan Landfors, President of Technology Solutions at Nouryon. “We are pleased to be part of a solution that offers significant sustainability benefits to end-users.”
