Russian deal gives Lanxess fluoroelastomer line

April 22/2009
   Synthetic rubber major Lanxess is adding a range of fluoroelastomers to its portfolio through a distribution agreement with Russian manufacturer Halopolymer OJSC (Open Joint Stock Company).

The company will offer the products under the Levatherm A brand and has put a team of experts specialising in market and technical service in place, it says.

Halopolymer will continue to service the Russian market as it has up to now.

The Russsian company claims a near 10% share of the global fluoropolymer market of which it is the country"s leading supplier of Freon and fluoropolymers. "We produce about 13,000 metric tonnes of PTFE per year," said ceo Maxim Doroshkevich. "It is a global strategy of Halopolymer to diversify our fluoropolymers business from the production of PTFE as a commodity to specialised products – melt processable fluoropolymer and fluorinated rubbers – to gain about 10% of the global market.

"The cooperation with Lanxess is of great benefit to our company helping us to promote our new products on the market and providing us with a very good partner in the field of technical rubbers."

At Lanxess, technical rubber products chief Guenther Weymans added: "This product is a perfect addition to our range of high performance rubbers and ensures that Lanxess has exactly the right elastomers in its portfolio for an even wider range of highly specialised applications."

Lanxess puts world consumption of fluoroelastomers at more than 20,000 tonnes a year
