Merck sells coating formulations business to durXtreme

DARMSTADT, GERMANY: Merck sign a cooperation agreement with German’s coatings specialist, durXtreme GmbH of Ulm, where durXtreme will have full control over Merck’s European business with polysilazane-based coating formulations marketed under the tutoProm brand.

According to the agreement, durXtreme is receiving an exclusive five-year license covering manufacturing, commercialization and brand usage rights for the polysilazane-containing Merck products tutoProm bright, tutoProm matt HD, CAG 37, and CL 1068 in Europe.

DurXtreme is an established formulation expert and specialist in customized polysilazane-based high-performance coatings and their applications.

TutoProm is a transparent coating system that allows an ultra-thin, glass-like finish and lasting soiling protection to smooth, non-suction surfaces. It is applied in the interiors and on the exteriors of public transport for graffiti protection and is also used to protect building facades, ship hulls, classic cars, and artworks in public spaces from negative environmental influences.

TutoProm ideally complements the durXtreme portfolio, which offers a broad range of products specifically developed for ultra-thin yet highly durable surface coatings in industrial applications.

"We are delighted to have found a highly qualified partner for our customers and are certain that durXtreme will expand the business further," said Michael Weiden, head of functional materials within the performance materials business sector of Merck.
