Ecoat, based in Grasse, France, develops bio-based and water-based binders for the paint industry. The cooperation, which has already been in effect for Germany, Austria and the Netherlands since January 2020, includes the promotion of a range of partly bio-based alkyd emulsions as well as alkyd urethane dispersions.

"Sustainability aspect plays a major role"

"The sustainability aspect plays a major role in the selection of our supplying partners. My colleagues from Germany and the Netherlands who already work with Ecoat have told me much about the extraordinary dedication and outstanding technical capabilities with which Ecoat produces and further develops its highly innovative products. I was quickly convinced that these products would also fit the requirements of our Polish customers very well,” says Magdalena Chudziak, Managing Director of Krahn Chemie Polska.

Nicolas Florent, General Manager and Business Director at Ecoat, comments: "Krahn Chemie has shown within the framework of the existing cooperation that it offers our customers a particular added value through its outstanding experience and technical knowledge in the field of paints and coatings. We are sure that this positive effect can also be transferred to other sales regions and for this reason we are now working together in Poland as well. As in Germany, Krahn Chemie also runs a laboratory in Poland where comprehensive tests can be conducted for our customers. We are pleased that this added value in combination with our products can now also be offered in Poland.”

The practical use of rheology is presented in the areas quality control, production and application, chemical and mechanical engineering, materials science and industrial research and development.
