Sumitomo Chemical and Nabaltec AG Establish Collaboration in Alumina and Aluminum Trihydroxide Business

TOKYO, JAPAN: Sumitomo Chemical Co Ltd and Nabaltec AG have been in discussions about collaborating on their alumina and aluminum trihydroxide business. The companies have agreed to start collaborating first in the commercial area. Nabaltec will be supplying Sumitomo Chemical an exclusive grade of fine precipitated aluminum trihydroxide for sale in East Asia.

As the demand for non- halogen flame retardants containing products increase the use of aluminum trihydroxide, it is expected to see substantial growth.

Sumitomo Chemical and Nabaltec AG agree the objective in this collaboration is to further strengthen their alumina and aluminum trihydroxide business.
