DSM, Ascend form global alliance for polyamide 66 compounds supply

SINGAPORE: Material sciences company DSM NV and Ascend Performance Materials Inc, high-quality chemicals, fibre and plastics provider, said that they have formed a global alliance for supply of compounds based on polyamide 66 (PA66). Ascend becomes the strategic supplier to DSM for PA66 base-polymer used as raw material for Akulon® PA66 compounds for engineering plastics applications. In addition, DSM will distribute Ascend’s portfolio of PA66 compounds sold under the brand name Vydyne®.

“Customers all around the world now have access to a full portfolio of Akulon PA66 compounds and Vydyne PA66, together with enhanced application development and innovation capabilities from both Ascend and DSM,” said Roelof Westerbeek, president DSM engineering plastics.

“It enormously expands our reach into applications that until now have been under-served, and it gives us better access to global customers. With our world-class facilities in the U.S. combined with DSM’s excellent sales, marketing and technical support, we believe we can now provide best-in-class products, productivity, and service to all our customers,” said Phil McDivitt, president, nylon business, Ascend.
