Perstorp, MGC to distribute co-polyesters in Europe

PERSTORP, SWEDEN/TOKYO, JAPAN: Perstorp and Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC) have signed a distribution agreement for MGC’s new co-polyesters and its key raw material. Through this agreement, Perstorp is the exclusive distributor of the innovative co-polyester under its own brand Akestra in Europe. This strategic partnership will enable developing the market for these new high heat resistant and durable co-polyesters in Europe, addressing the demand for safer and superior thermoplastics.

“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,” said David James, Market Development Manager, Perstorp.
