Safic-Alcan, an international specialty chemicals distributor, recently announced the extension of its agreement with Dow for the distribution of Dow’s flocking adhesives range. Drawing on the success of the existing agreement for Dow’s other product ranges, the extension will cover the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region (EMEA).

The agreement includes trademarks such as POLYFLOCK®, MOR-FLOCK®, POLYPRIME®, and CATALYSEUR CA®. These one- or two-component flocking adhesives (including primer and catalyst), solvent or waterborne, reportedly bond well to various elastomers for weatherstrip production.

“We are very pleased with the extension of our partnership with Dow for flocking adhesives,” said Philippe Combette, CEO of Safic-Alcan. “Their leading brands of high-performance adhesives will allow us to enhance our product portfolio dedicated to the production of very technical weatherstrip part, a key market segment for our rubber activities.”

“The extension of this agreement is testament to the reliability and reach of Safic-Alcan’s network that enable us to offer our customers timely access to Dow’s range of world-class technologies,” said Ana Carolina Haracemiv, Dow’s commercial director for polyurethanes in EMEA.
