Krahn Chemie Benelux signs as new silica distributor for PPG
This agreement extends the existing cooperation between the Krahn Chemie Group and PPG in Italy, Poland and France.
The cooperation comprises a range of synthetic amorphous precipitated silica products, including flatting agents that reduce the gloss of coatings, paints, lacquers, varnishes and inks, while providing lower viscosity and better stir-in capability; thickening agents that help achieve desired rheology properties as well as anti-sag/suspension performance with minimal impact on other system properties; and anti-corrosion pigments that are non-toxic and free of heavy metals.
“Strong position in the silica market”
“PPG holds a strong position in the silica market and is well-known for its broad and innovative range of high-quality precipitated silica products. We are pleased to expand our portfolio for the ink, coating, adhesive and sealant industry with the silica products PPG offers,” explains Cristian Groenewegen, Managing Director of Krahn Chemie Benelux.
Gilles Gressier, PPG EMEA business director, silica products comments: “The previous cooperation with the Krahn Group in Italy, Poland and France convinced us that their sales approach based on close relationships with their customers and deep technical understanding of the products is of high value for us as well as for our customers. We are sure that the extension of this trusting cooperation into the Benelux region is a well thought-out step.”
