Nordmann and Evonik expand their successful partnership
Hamburg, March 22, 2021: Since the beginning of the year, the international chemical distributor Nordmann has been managing the German and Benelux distribution of Evonik Operations GmbH’s VISIOMER® HEMA-P product line for flame retardant applications.
Evonik is one of the world’s leading specialty chemicals companies and has been partnering successfully with Nordmann in the monomer sector ever since 1995. Now, Nordmann is expanding its portfolio to include Evonik’s reactive, halogen-free, transparent and liquid flame retardants.
Evonik’s VISIOMER® HEMA-P range includes both VISIOMER® HEMA-P 70M and VISIOMER® HEMA-P 100. VISIOMER® HEMA-P 70M is an easy-to-process 70% 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate phosphate in 30% methyl methacrylate. VISIOMER® HEMA-P100, on the other hand, is the pure and P-based active component with higher viscosity and exceptionally high phosphorous content.
“We are very pleased to be extending our partnership with Evonik to include the distribution of its VISIOMER® HEMA-P flame retardants. The range serves as an ideal complement to our existing portfolio of halogen-free flame retardants (HFFR) and synergists, thanks to the line’s unique properties. Being both liquid and transparent, the products are particularly well-suited for many different types of applications in the adhesives, plastics, paint and coatings industries, as well as for use in fibers, composite resins and gelcoats,″ remarked Ralf Meier, Business Manager Flame Retardants at Nordmann.
“Nordmann has special expertise in the field of flame retardants, so customers receive excellent advice on the use of our VISIOMER® HEMA-P range. We are therefore pleased to be intensifying our cooperation in this area,″ added Martin Trocha, Vice President Specialty Methacrylates at Evonik.
