Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Lanxess is expanding its relationship with distributor Azelis in the US. It will now distribute Witcobond polyurethane dispersions there, starting on 1 November.
Witcobond PUDs are functional coatings used in leather and textile production, where they extend product life by protecting them from abrasion and environmental influences.
Azelis already offers a number of Lanxess Urethane Systems product lines for the CASE market. These include plasticisers and flame retardant additives.
‘The Witcobond line is globally recognized and provides formulators with a comprehensive line of water-based polyurethane dispersion options that comply with increasingly demanding regulations on VOCs,’ said Rocky Prior, managing director of Azelis Americas CASE. ‘Extending our strategic relationship with Lanxess to include the Witcobond line is a testament to the strength of our ability and commitment in growing this market.
