For decades, Nordmann has had a wide portfolio and extensive expertise in the area of flame retardants in plastics, elastomers, coatings, adhesives and other application fields. A key pillar here is the halogen-free flame retardants, distributed under the company’s own NORD-MIN® brand. These include expandable graphites, ammonium-polyphates as well as melamine cyanurates and flame retardant masterbatches.

Additionally, there is the long-term, successful collaboration with internationally leading manufacturers of flame retardants and synergists such as Rio Tinto and Nyacol from the USA, Tolsa from Spain and Fushimi from Japan, whose products Nordmann distributes in Europe.

Within the new Europe concept, the focus includes bundling the activities of the individual Nordmann locations, uncovering synergies and further optimising the expertise transfer. Here, customers benefit above all from a partner network throughout Europe. Through the European approach, Nordmann ensures that it is able to supply international customers with the right raw materials at the right time and in the right place even better in future.

Ralf Meier, European Business Manager Flame Retardants at Nordmann, says: “Flame retardants are of strategic importance to Nordmann. We see great potential in this market. I would like to make the outstanding application expertise we possess available on a cross-location basis and thus to our customers internationally.”
