Nordmann expands cooperation with Olin to CEE

Olin, the world’s leading supplier of epoxy materials, has been successfully distributed in the DACH region by Nordmann since 2017. The distribution agreement concerning Olin’s epoxy resins, novolac resins, reactive diluents, hardeners and waterborne solutions is now being extended through a collaboration in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

Safety and environmental protection are top priorities for Nordmann partner Olin. Completely back-integrated production is just as much a focus for the manufacturer as the continuous further development of innovative coating solutions.

With the newly created epoxy materials D.E.H. 4888® and D.E.H. 4915®, Olin is presenting future-oriented developments of the already established materials D.E.H. 488® and D.E.H. 4911® with several advantages.

With D.E.H. 4915®, the manufacturer provides a low-emission, non-toxic and CMR free substitute, which at the same time offers better technical properties such as faster accessibility of floor coverings. The material is versatile. In combination with numerous epoxy blends, it is suitable for flooring and intumescent coatings.

Advantages of D.E.H. 4915®:

  • VOC-free, non-toxic, non-reprotoxic
  • Rapid hardness development
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Improved chemical resistance
  • Excellent mechanical properties

D.E.H. 4888® is also much more environmentally friendly than its predecessor. The continuously increasing demands of the market for self-leveling floor coverings, screeds, mortars and primers were taken into account in the development of the product.

Advantages of D.E.H. 4888®:

  • Free of substances such as CMR and SVHC (substances of very high concern)
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Fast surface accessibility
  • Excellent mechanical properties
