Biesterfeld Spezialchemie has been granted the Preferred Distributorship for plastics processing materials and spray adhesives by CRC Industries, a global leader in the production of specialty chemicals for maintenance, repair and overhaul for professionals and do-it-yourselfers. The products are primarily used in plastics processing, the automotive industry and general industry. With immediate effect, Biesterfeld will distribute the brands SERVISOL, CRC® and a part of KONTAKT CHEMIE® in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The portfolio comprises release agents, adhesives, cleaners, lubricants and anti-corrosion products. The products support the entire plastics processing operation chain. This entails lubricants for ejector pins in injection moulding machines, mould-protection products for metal moulds during shorter and longer periods of inactivity or which come into contact with aggressive products; i.e. in the processing of PVC. The portfolio also includes all-purpose mould cleaners, ideal for the removal of polymer residues. There are also release agents for demoulding thermoplastics and thermosets for injection moulding, vacuum forming, compression moulding and many other applications. Spray adhesives for a broad range of applications round off the portfolio. They can be used to bond foam, fabric, cardboard, wood, paper and even GRP, e.g. in the wind energy sector.
“The CRC products are a perfect fit for our complementary product portfolio of the Biesterfeld Group, which already serves the plastics industry and which is used extensively in the blow moulding sector”, explains Dr Johannes Martin, Product Manager Performance Products at Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. “Our customers will benefit from these synergies as they can now purchase highly-advanced polymers and polymer-processing materials through Biesterfeld.”
“We are hereby extending our collaboration with Biesterfeld across Europe. Their knowledge of the industry is second to none and their technical expertise in both polymers and polymer-processing materials, as well as customer liaison, is superb”, adds Nic Baetslé, Sales Director DACH at CRC Industries Europe. “We are delighted that we can now join forces to market our portfolio in the DACH region and are confident of a successful collaboration with Dr Johannes Martin and his team.”
