Nordmann, Rassmann continues to distribute Converge® series
Hamburg, 09.03.2017 – Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH is continuing to distribute the Converge® product line in Germany following Aramco Performance Materials LLC’s (APM) acquisition of all Converge®-related operations and technologies from US-based Novomer Inc. Saudi Aramco is planning for full-scale production facilities in Saudi-Arabia to support the production of specialty and intermediate chemical products to supply a wide variety of industries. Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH began selling the series in June 2014.
Converge® is manufactured from carbon dioxide (CO2) and provides a high-performance, cost competitive and more sustainable alternative to conventional, petroleum-based polyols that are used in coating, adhesive, sealant and elastomer (CASE) applications which feature in high-value, high-demand end products included within the flexible and rigid foam manufacturing segments. From automobile seats to building insulation panels, applications cover a broad spectrum. When incorporated into polyurethane formulations, Converge® products demonstrate superior material performance, including increased strength; increased abrasion, chemical and weathering resistance; increased adhesion, hardness and tear-strength; greater load-bearing capacity and reduced heat of combustion - all properties that are particularly sought-after in safe and high-quality end products.
