Perstorp and MGC form partnership to distribute copolyesters in Europe

May 07/2012

(specialchem4adhesives) -- Perstorp and Mitsubishi Gas Chemical has announced the signing of a distribution agreement for the new copolyesters and key raw material. Through this agreement, Perstorp is the exclusive distributor of the innovative copolyester under its own brand Akestra in Europe.

This strategic partnership will enable developing the market for these new high heat resistant and durable copolyesters in Europe, addressing the demand for safer and superior thermoplastics.

"We are very pleased to collaborate with MGC for developing the market of this next generation of amorphous highly transparent co-polyesters," says David James, Market Development Manager. "There is strong need in substituting other thermoplastics like polycarbonate due to safety and environmental concern and Akestra can be seen as a viable alternative. Its unique set of properties also make it attractive for developing new applications and substituting other materials like glass and polymers with improved performance, durability, lighter weight, and with low energy consumption for processing. On longer term, thanks to our key integrated technologies in Europe, the ambition is to establish jointly the most competitive production platform in Europe for the raw material used in these copolyesters"
