Nexam Chemical discontinues exclusivity agreement with Armacell


– mutual ambition to replace with a supply agreement

In 2014, Nexam Chemical and Armacell signed an exclusivity agreement regarding products for PET foam. Due to longer development times, the agreed minimum volumes will not be fully met within the time limit. Nexam Chemical and Armacell therefore discontinues the current exclusivity agreement with a mutual ambition to replace it with a supply agreement.

“Nexam Chemical´s products has proven to be effective and facilitate major property enhancements to the PET foam that we so far have produced in our facilities. Our PET foam containing Nexam Chemical´s product provides conditions for a new generation of PET foam on the market. Based on the results we have, and with the good collaboration with Nexam Chemical, we continue the work together with the ambition to sign a supply agreement”, says Armacells Global Business Director PET Core, Bart Janssen.

“It is positive to see how our NEXAMITE® performance enhancers can make a vital difference in products with such market potential as PET foam. We look forward to continue our cooperation with Armacell”, says Nexam Chemicals CEO Anders Spetz.
