Hexion Collaborates with D&R Dispersions and Resins
5th August 2020
Hexion, a US-based thermoset resins and specialty chemicals company, is collaborating with Poland’s D&R Dispersions and Resins on the first commercial-scale production of the former’s VeoVa isocyanates-free silane technology.
According to Hexion, demand for VeoVa has grown quickly since its launch in March 2019, and the partnership with D&R Dispersions and Resins offers strategic manufacturing capabilities in Eastern Europe to meet production needs for specialty applications.
Arkadiusz Kowalczyk, vice president of D&R Dispersions and Resins, described the technology as a “real breakthrough in the resin industry” and said: “We are continuously exploring alternative monomeric raw materials and technologies; this collaboration allows us to create truly innovative and sustainable binder solutions for the coatings industry.”
The partners did not give any further details of their plans for commercial production. D&R Dispersons and Resins already manufactures alkyd and acrylic resins and water dispersions – copolymers of acrylic monomer, styrene and vinyl acetate – at its location in Wloclawek.
