CVC Expands Distribution Agreement with IMCD Germany

February 8, 2012

CVC Thermoset Specialties, an Emerald Performance Materials Company, has expanded its distribution agreement with IMCD Germany to include its Hypro™ Reactive Liquid Polymer (RLP) products. The RLP product line is manufactured at the company’s Akron, Ohio, operations and is supplied globally through a network of distribution partners and agents. IMCD represents CVC’s epoxy and RLP products in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, France, and Switzerland. In Germany, the company previously handled CVC’s specialty epoxy materials only. Reportedly in response to growing demand in Germany for the RLP technology, CVC has chosen to extend the distribution agreement.

“CVC continues to see growth opportunities for our RLP materials in Europe, particularly for applications such as high-performance coatings, structural adhesives and sealants,” said Walt Bustynowicz, vice president of Global Sales for CVC Thermoset Specialties. “Our business has been built upon delivering performance advantages to our customers through the products and services we offer. We continue to make investments in new product technology and expanded manufacturing capacity to match the growth potential for our RLP product line in the marketplace.”
