Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Deerfield Urethane Inc., a manufacturer of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and elastomer films, has been merged into the Functional Films unit of Bayer MaterialScience. The South Deerfield, Massachusetts-based company was formerly a subsidiary of BMS, a recent statement from Bayer said.
With this merger, BMS has now grouped together all of its speciality films businesses into its Functional Films unit - part of the company's Coating, Adhesives and Specialities (CAS) business.
The move will "enhance the company's product and application development capabilities, improve technologies and broaden the product portfolio," the statement said. (RD)
