Evonik bundles expertise in crosslinking technology
Evonik Industries AG has combined its isophorone chemistry and epoxy curing agents business in the new Crosslinkers business line.
The newly formed Business Line will be part of the Resource Efficiency Segment. TIt has a total of about 1.000 employees worldwide and production facilities in Europe, North America, and Asia.
Broad technology platform
With the acquisition of the Air Product's epoxy curing agents business and Evonik's experience in isophorone chemistry, the company has a broad technology platform and expertise in crosslinker technology. The new Crosslinkers business line offers a broad range of products and competences for coatings and adhesives, civil engineering as well as for high-performance elastomers and composites.
Variety of products under one roof
Evonik covers the entire value chain: isophorone, diamine, as well as di-isocyanate and polyisocyanate. Additionally the product portfolio contains amine curing agents for ambient and heat cure applications. The products are mainly used in industrial applications due to the mechanical strength, durability, chemical resistance and good adhesion properties. "Combining both businesses gives Evonik the chance to offer a variety of products for epoxy and polyurethane applications under one roof – be it basic amines, isocyanate monomers, polyisocyanates or formulated epoxy hardeners”, Dr. Claus Rettig, Chairman of the Board of Management, Evonik Resource Efficiency GmbH.
