Melrob has recently become an affiliate of Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH (NRC). Methacrylate-based monomers are components of many products and applications such as coatings, adhesives, and plastics.

Setup concerns standard monomers

On October 1, Melrob and the NRC Group will take over exclusive distribution of standard monomers in Europe (excl. CIS), specifically methyl methacrylate “Visiomer MMA”, methacrylic acid “Visiomer GMMA”, hydroxy methacrylates “Visiomer HEMA” and “Visiomer HPMA”, and the butyl methacrylates “Visiomer i-BMA” and “Visiomer n-BMA”. From January 1, 2018 the Melrob-NRC Group will also be distributing the specialty methacrylate monomers from Evonik.

Strenghtening leading position

“The reorganisation of the distribution business will enable us to respond better to the needs of our customers in Europe and we will benefit from the long-term experience of Melrob and the NRC Group. With this setup we’re positioning ourselves as a leading solutions provider for methacrylates,” says Hans-Peter Hauck, head of the Methacrylates Business Line.
