Hamburg, 8. October 2022 – Biesterfeld, one of the world's leading distribution and service companies in the field of plastics, rubber and specialty chemicals, and Airtech, the largest manufacturer of vacuum bagging and composite tooling materials, are expanding their nearly 20-year distribution partnership. With immediate effect, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie has been granted additional distribution rights in Germany that cover Airtech’s product range for Composite & Tooling services. Germany is the fourth country, following Poland, Estonia and Sweden.
Customers benefit from synergy effects
Airtech Europe Sarl distinguishes itself with a highly advanced product portfolio that consists of vacuum bagging materials and materials for prepreg/autoclave, resin infusion and wet lay-up processes up to 426 °C. In particular Airtech offers a wide range of vacuum bagging films, release films, pressure sensitive tapes, mould releases (non-liquid), peel plies, breathers & bleeders, sealant tapes, vacuum bag connectors & hoses, rubber, pressure pads, cutting tools, vacuum leak detectors, shrink tape and spray adhesives. The well-known brands like Wrightlon®, Big Blue L-100, Flashbreaker®, Econostitch® or Securlon® have become indispensable in the composite industry.
With this collaboration, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie now offers a much broader portfolio providing German customers in industries like automotive, marine, energy, electronics (PCBs), medical, general industry, sports & leisure with significant synergetic effects. Those operating in the field of composites & tooling often have a demand for other, complementing products and will therefore benefit from being able to choose from a wide range of solutions.
