The state-of-the-art laboratory, which also includes a customer service center, will support customers with the development of innovative surface coatings in Turkey and throughout the Middle East.

Top-of-the-line equipment for processing

The application technology laboratory features top-of-the-line equipment for processing customer requests for a wide range of coatings and printing ink applications. This allows the lab staff to effectively formulate, apply, and test a variety of coatings and printing inks in water-based, solvent-based, or radiation-curing formats. The modern laboratory equipment also includes a spray booth and a climatic chamber.

Strengthening the presence in the region

"The new laboratory strengthens our presence in the region,” emphasizes Gaetano Blanda, the head of the Coating Additives business line. "It enhances our market proximity and enables us to provide our customers with technical service and product solutions for the development of new formulations even faster.” The new laboratory and the adjacent customer service center has created two new jobs and is staffed by five employees total.

30th anniversary in Turkey in August 2017

From its Tuzla site east of Istanbul, Evonik Ticaret Ltd. manages the distribution for the Turkish domestic market and exports to adjacent growth markets with a staff of fifty employees. Evonik Ticaret will celebrate its 30th anniversary in Turkey in August 2017. The opening of the new laboratory is just another milestone of the Evonik growth strategy for Turkey.

Evonik’s most important products in Turkey include monomers, amino acids, cyanides, silicas and superabsorbents. The Group also holds 51% of shares in Egesil Kimya Sanayi & Ticaret, a joint venture based in Adapazari (near Istanbul) for the production of silica.
