Safic-Alcan and Dow expand distribution agreement to cover EMEA region for flocking adhesives range


Safic-Alcan, an international speciality chemicals distributor, has extended its agreement with Dow for the distribution of the flocking adhesives range.

Drawing on the success of the existing agreement for Dow’s other product ranges, the extension will cover Europe, Middle East and Africa region (EMEA), effective from April 1, 2019.

The agreement includes trademarks, such as POLYFLOCK®, MOR-FLOCK®, POLYPRIME® and CATALYSEUR CA®, which are a series of one or two component flocking adhesives (including primer and catalyst), solvent- or waterborne, that bond very well to various elastomers for weatherstrip production.

“We are very pleased with the extension of our partnership with Dow for flocking adhesives” said Philippe Combette, CEO of Safic-Alcan.

“Their leading brands of high performance adhesives will allow us to enhance our product portfolio dedicated to the production of very technical weatherstrip part, a key market segment for our rubber activities,” concluded Philippe Combette.

“The extension of this agreement is testament to the reliability and reach of Safic-Alcan’s network that enables us to offer our customers timely access to Dow’s range of world-class technologies,” added Ana Carolina Haracemiv, Dow’s commercial director for polyurethanes in EMEA.
