Cologne, Germany – Lanxess has combined the activities of the former Rhein Chemie and the Lanxess functional additives business into a new Rhein Chemie Additives business unit.
The new unit will be exhibiting for the first time at UTECH Europe 2015, organised by Crain Communications, publisher of UTECH-polyuethane.com.
The new Rhein Chemie business unit has a range of products including flame retardants, plasticisers, crosslinking agents, catalysts and hydrolysis stabilisers for rigid and flexible foams and CASE formulations, the company said.
The two business units were merged together on 1 January 2015. Rhein Chemie Rheinau became part of Bayer in 1971, after operating independently since 1899. It was spun off as a division of Lanxess in 2004.
