Great Lakes acquires non-staining antioxidants business from Flexsys America

Great Lakes Chemical Corporation : 05 December, 2002  (New Product)
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has acquired Flexsys America
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has acquired Flexsys America’s non-staining phenolic antioxidants business that includes process technology associated with Santonox TBMC, Santovar TAHQ, and Santowhite BBMC. Great Lakes will market these products under its established line of Lowinox non-staining antioxidants, which protect against oxygen degradation and discoloration during processing. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mark Bulriss, Great Lakes Chairman, President, and CEO, stated, “This deal fits well within our strategy to grow our polymer stabilisers business and immediately expands the customer base for our Lowinox line of non-staining and non-discolouring antioxidants. In addition to illustrating our ongoing commitment to providing quality products for the polymer industry, this acquisition provides additional opportunities to better serve the needs of our customers through increased efficiencies.”

Great Lakes will increase production at its facilities in Catenoy, France, and Waldkraiburg, Germany, to meet the increased demand.

Due to its resistance to thermo-oxidative degradation, the Lowinox line of phenolic antioxidants are suited for use in a wide range of applications from thermoplastics and adhesives to HDPE and LDPE that produce items such as water and gas pipes, high voltage cables, tapes and adhesives, and tyre cord.
