Distribution Partnership with Evonik
As of October 1, 2022, TER Chemicals Distribution Group has taken over the distribution for VESTOSINT® PA12 powders by Evonik. The high-performance plastic powders expand TER Chemicals’ product portfolio for coatings, paints and composite applications. The extensive collaboration with long-time partner Evonik includes distribution in Europe (excluding Italy) and Brazil.
“We are very pleased to have gained TER Chemicals as a strong distribution partner with intact and flexible supply chains as well as a strong customer focus for our VESTOSINT® products. The new partnership is expected to increase the availability of our products in the relevant application fields, such as metal coating and paint and ink formulation,” says Dr. Peter Hannen, Head of the Powder and Specialties Market Segment at Evonik.
VESTOSINT® comprises tailor-made polymers based on polyamide 12. They are particularly suitable for coating metals and also serve as additives to improve the properties of coatings and for the production of fiber composites.
“The long-standing partnership and good cooperation with Evonik now opens up the opportunity for us to grow further together with VESTOSINT®. We are particularly pleased to be able to offer our customers from the coatings sector additional specialty products that meaningfully complement the portfolio,” says Jens Vinke, Head of Business Unit CASE at TER Chemicals.
Evonik has been producing high-performance polymers for over 40 years and is known for its expertise in powder technology – spanning development, production, application technology, and service. VESTOSINT® combines the valued properties of PA12 in one product line: a high level of toughness; very good resistance to greases, oils, fuels, hydraulic fluids, water, salt solutions, and many solvents; very good stress cracking resistance even with exposure to chemicals; high abrasion resistance even when running dry; and excellent noise and vibration damping.
With annual turnover of 425 million euros and 345 employees at 21 locations, TER Chemicals Distribution Group is a globally active distributor of specialty chemicals with a focus on Europe. The product portfolio of the CASE business unit ranges from additives for a wide variety of applications, binders, dispersions and plastics to resins, processing aids and colorants (pigments, pigment preparations and dyes).
