Clariant launches web presence for recently acquired defoamers business
Article Type: New products From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 39, Issue 1
Clariant has launched a comprehensive web presence for its newly acquired defoamers business. The web pages are found at www.defoamers.us. Through the new webpages, customers, and prospects can become better acquainted with the company's proven know-how and family of technologies for more than 100 different foam-control products, silicone fluids and emulsions in end-use markets ranging from adhesives to building materials, food and fermentation, mining and oil services, pulp and paper, and water and waste treatment.
Visitors to the defoamers web pages can also:
download product bulletins;
request product samples;
ask a question or make a general inquiry; and
send e-mail directly to technical, sales, and customer service contacts for the business.
In May Clariant acquired the XL Performance Chemicals from FibroChem LLC and its affiliates, citing the excellent business opportunity offered in a more than $2 billion global market that is growing annually at a rate of 4-5 percent. Manufacturing will continue to be centered in the USA at a facility in Greenville, South Carolina operated under a toll agreement, with the potential for Clariant to transfer manufacturing to its own strategically located plants elsewhere in the world as market penetration and growth increases.
