SIBUR and BASF to collaborate in additives project

September 17/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SIBUR, a leading Russian gas processing and petrochemicals company, and the German chemicals giant BASF signed a Long-Term Cooperation Memorandum to supply additives used for polymer production and processing at SIBURís production facilities.The agreement was signed by Oleg Makarov, SIBURís Managing Director, and Sergey Andreev, Head of BASF in Russia and CIS, informs SIBUR.

The deal provides for supplies of additives used to produce polypropylene, polyethylene, synthetic rubbers, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), and ABS plastics at SIBUR's production facilities, with BASF ensuring also technical support. Additives help to protect polymers from harmful temperature, mechanical or light exposure.

ďSIBUR is continuously working to improve the quality of its products to better serve its customersí needs. We are happy to have signed the cooperation agreement with BASF, a recognised global leader in production of additives for polymers,Ē Oleg Makarov said. ďIts wealth of experience and technical expertise in this segment will contribute to further quality improvements of SIBURís products.Ē

ďAs part of its new strategy in the Russian and CIS markets, BASF is keen to step up its presence in the region including through joint projects with its customers. We have a long-standing partnership with SIBUR and hope that our cutting-edge products and solutions will contribute to our Russian partnerís further success in building up the range of its branded products,Ē Sergey Andreev said.

To maintain their positions in the market, SIBUR and BASF look to develop new, advanced materials; in particular, they plan to collaborate in projects with a view to improving properties of elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers. Additionally, there is a project in progress for SIBURís production of a new polypropylene product for nonwoven fabrics. Potential use of customer specific blends by BASF, which boost production efficiency and consistency of product quality, is under discussion.
