Krahn Chemie now also selling biocides from Lanxess in Austria
A distribution agreement for biocides and antimicrobial agents, as well as for the preservatives manufactured from them has already been in place in Germany and the Benelux countries since August 2017.
Application areas include paints and varnishes
The products are used in the context of industrial preservation and disinfection. Application areas include paints and varnishes, detergents, cooling lubricants, adhesives, plastics, additives, and wood protection products.
“Due to the coming into force of the 13th ATP and the reclassification of MIT (methyl isothiazolinone) resulting from this, reconsideration in the field of in-can preservation is imperative. In Lanxess, we have a reliable and innovative partner at our side that has occupied itself intensively with the new legislation and has focused on an MIT-free portfolio” says Ibrahim Zidan, Business Segment Manager Coatings & Construction Chemicals, Krahn Chemie Deutschland GmbH.
Daniel Schlawe, Head of Sales EMEA in the Material Protection Products business area at Lanxess, comments: “The existing cooperation has shown that Krahn convinces on the basis of its pronounced technical understanding and thus offers our customers special added value. The trust established and the very good performance in Germany and the Benelux countries have led to the decision to expand the cooperation.”
Krahn Chemie has already been marketing additives from Lanxess for the manufacture of industrial lubricants for three years.
