The Orgasol® product line will be marketed and supported through the C.A.S.E division (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers) of Azelis Canada, expanding our product offering of functional performance additives to these industry segments. The business aligns well with Azelis Canada’a current Arkema relationship for Sartomer® acrylate and methacrylate monomers and oligomers for high energy curable applications.

This move further strengthens and expands the relationship between two companies. Originally started in 1968 with the Sartomer® product line, and based on the continued growth and performance this was a natural product line expansion that we are looking forward to in Canada.

Orgasol® is a range of high performance powders used as additives in paints, varnishes, inks, and compounds to improve properties in highly demanding coating applications. It offers unique properties for coatings including, high abrasion & scratch resistance, matting, texturing, soft touch, antiblocking, and can be used in all kinds of liquid paints.
