ChemPoint to Distribute DuPont™ Capstone® Fluorosurfactants in US & Canada

Published on 2012-10-09. Author : SpecialChem

Bellevue, WA-- ChemPoint and DuPont Fluoropolymer Solutions (DuPont) announced that ChemPoint has been selected as a preferred distributor for DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactants in the United States and Canada. ChemPoint will manage order placement and fulfillment, as well as technical assistance and support for Capstone® fluorosurfactants.

"DuPont is excited about working with ChemPoint for the supply of Capstone® fluorosurfactants in North America," said Doug Westerhoff, North America Sales Manager, DuPont Fluoropolymer Solutions. "ChemPoint's focus on customer service and the groundbreaking methods of driving market penetration align well with the needs of customers."

DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactants are based on short-chain chemistry that cannot break down to perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in the environment. They offer customers the same or better performance as their predecessors without a compromise in fluorine efficiency.

Capstone® fluorosurfactants are used in a variety of materials such as paints and coatings, adhesives, waxes and polishes, and industrial cleaning products. Capstone® fluorosurfactants enhance formulations by substantially reducing surface tension and by improving properties such as wetting and spreading, leveling, penetrating, foaming control, chemical stability and thermal stability.

Capstone® fluorosurfactants meet the goals of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program.

"ChemPoint's progressive, unique business model combined with DuPont world-class fluorosurfactant technology provides our customers with the added value and confidence they seek when developing or improving their formulations," commented Rick Hoener, Business Director, ChemPoint. "Extending our channel partnership with the Capstone® fluorosurfactants line presents a tremendous strategic opportunity for us, and we're looking forward to working with DuPont on this venture."

ChemPoint is a preferred distributor of more than 150 product lines, to more than 11,000 customers worldwide.
