IMCD and BASF extend acrylic monomer partnership to Iberia

ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands (28 October, 2014) - IMCD N.V. announces that its BASF standard acrylic monomer partnership was extended to the Iberian region.

IMCD has partnered with BASF for the distribution of its acrylic monomers for more than 35 years, continuously expanding the cooperation to different regions during this time. Representing the last remaining IMCD European territory to be included in the partnership agreement, this expansion will allow IMCD to distribute glacial acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, butylacrylate, ethylacrylate and methylacrylate in Iberia.

These monomers are key raw materials in industrial synthesis and are used within a broad range of end applications including synthetic resins for coatings, paints, textiles, detergents, paper and construction.

"IMCD is delighted to extend the successful BASF partnership to one of the fastest growing industrial synthesis areas for IMCD in Europe", comments Dirk Bark, IMCD International Product Manager Acrylates. "BASF is the leading producer of acrylate monomers and IMCD is confident that this new contract will further strengthen its product portfolio and technical offering to the Iberian market whilst it continues to provide BASF with a best-in-class, value-adding service.”
