EVERBERG, BELGIUM/THE WOODLANDS, US: The Polyurethanes division of Huntsman has signed a cooperation agreement with Polinvent, a research-intensive enterprise that has recently developed and patented a range of novel amine-epoxy adducts. Together, the two companies will explore the benefits that can be derived from incorporating Polinvent adducts into polyurethane and polyurea coatings as well as other adhesive and elastomer products.

Huntsman will have exclusive access to Polinvent adducts for an initial three year period. During this time, the two companies will seek out new application opportunities and create new adducts for industrialization. The agreement covers research, development, manufacture, trade and intellectual property rights.

“Polinvent was looking for a global trade partner that could make use of its adduct technology, while we are looking for sustainable, innovative solutions that can help us differentiate our products and improve our competitiveness. We look forward to utilize Polinvent’s existing adducts across our global manufacturing and supply network, and to developing new amine-epoxy adducts in cooperation with their highly skilled chemists,” said Ian Rimmer, Manager, Commercial Coatings Europe, Huntsman Polyurethanes.
