Maroon Group to Distribute Polyscope Styrene Maleic Anhydride Copolymers in U.S.
Typical applications for these materials reportedly include adhesives, coatings, over-print varnishes, and gypsum-based construction products, and as a key building block for pigment dispersants.
Polyscope recently announced the appointment of Maroon Group LLC as a U.S. distributor for its Xiran® styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymer resins and aqueous solutions. According to Polyscope, the main characteristics of Xiran copolymers are transparent appearance, high heat resistance, high dimensional stability, and the specific reactivity of the anhydride group. Typical applications reportedly include adhesives, coatings, over-print varnishes, and gypsum-based construction products, and as a key building block for pigment dispersants.
“Polyscope’s broad SMA product offering immediately provides our CASE Sales Team with new solutions to offer our customer base,” said Bill Nicholas, vice president of Sales-CASE at Maroon Group. “Their mission to create a sustainable and environmentally sound growing company through safety, trust and empowerment via an entrepreneurial culture is completely aligned with Maroon Group’s culture of Creating Customer Success® with every interaction with our valued principals and customers.”
