This regional distribution responsibility will be complemented by the production and sale of epoxy/CTBN adducts. Since January 2003, hanse chemie has been acting as exclusive distributor for selected European countries. Peter Fielder, Noveon's Business Manager for Hycar reactive liquid polymer products said “hanse chemie has worked well with our customer base over the past year in Northern Europe and Italy and has exhibited significant skill and capability in this role. We firmly believe that increasing the level of responsibilities hanse chemie has in Europe will be a benefit to our customer base and the total business”.

Hycar reactive liquid polymers are additives used primarily to enhance toughness or flexibility in end-use formulations. These formulations are involved in a wide range of applications: adhesives, coatings, composites and construction materials. Noveon currently offers Hycar materials with carboxyl, amine and methacrylated end groups, and hanse chemie will do further processing to offer customers epoxy terminated materials.
