Brenntag, the global market leader in chemical distribution, has signed an agreement with C-IP SA, Luxembourg, on the exclusive rights for the blending, sale and distribution of two innovative rheology modifiers. Both products, Rhebor™ Plus and Rhebor™ CB 6810, are exclusively distributed by Brenntag Holding GmbH worldwide, excluding North America and Mexico. Furthermore, Brenntag is taking over the blending of the products at its Duisburg site in Germany.
Both Rhebor™ products are mainly utilized in the production of corrugated board and are newly developed, high-performance substances. Following the needs and requests of the industry and in order to comply with the REACH registration, the products are innovative alternatives for common products containing boron.
Uwe Schültke, COO Brenntag Europe, Middle East and Africa: “With this agreement, we are strengthening our specialty chemicals portfolio in the promising pulp & paper industry. In addition, we are increasing our successful blending business, and, finally, are expecting cross selling potential within our existing customer and product portfolio.”
