Biesterfeld and SONGWON extend their strategic partnership for polymer stabilisers on the French market

Biesterfeld is extending its long-term distribution partnership with SONGWON, the South Korean speciality chemicals manufacturer. With immediate effect, the polymer stabiliser range, which consists of antioxidants, thioesters, UV absorbers and dust-free formulations (marketed as 'One Pack Systems'), will be exclusively distributed by Biesterfeld France on the French market. The products are predominantly used in the plastics processing industry and in compounding as well as masterbatching.

The range includes products known by the trade name SONGNOX®. The specially designed stabilisers protect polymers during processing and use. They ensure that plastic and end products retain their physical properties, such as their colour or mechanical functions, and prolong their long-term stability. The SONGSORB® UV absorbers are stabilisers which prevent the light-induced degradation of organic materials. They counteract signs of ageing caused by light, extending the product's service life. The range also includes the SONGNOX® OPS One Pack Systems and SONGXTEND® Stabiliser Solutions, which offer optimum thermal stabilisation solutions for a wide range of applications. All products are available in a variety of chemical classes.

"We constantly strive to improve our product availability and customer service. The partnership with Biesterfeld France is strengthening our distribution network, and is an important step towards achieving our goal of delivering solutions that exceed the expectations of our French customers," says Albert Dantuma, Sales Leader, Polymer Stabilisers Greater Europe, SONGWON.

"We are delighted by the trust that SONGWON is placing in us, and with the consolidation of our successful European distribution partnership", comments Michael Pilz, Business Manager, Polymer Additives at Biesterfeld Spezialchemie. "The outstanding characteristics of the polymer stabilisers will give our customers production benefits and competitive advantages."
