Degussa's Business Line Goldschmidt Industrial Specialties Commits to the Label Industry

Further to their recently reported investment in a modern test facility with UV and PSA inline coating capabilities, RC Silicones' market leader Degussa again sets clear signals for their commitment to service the self-adhesive label industry. Since May this year, Dr. Philipp Tomuschat from Degussa Corporate Headquarters has joined the Essen RC Team as a project leader for the self-adhesive label industry. He will be supported by Hendrik van der Meij, an experienced expert, who has gained lots of know-how over decades working in the self-adhesive industry.

Hendrik van der Meij won first experiences with Avery Dennison, then joined David Blansjaar's call to work for his many self-adhesive activities including companies manufacturing self-adhesive labels, labelstock and self-adhesive tapes. The two new RC team members will introduce and offer to practically convince the self-adhesive label industry across the whole supply chain about the advantages offered Degussa's innovative technology of UV cured silicone release coatings. Initially, two projects will be addressed: one, the use of thin film liners for roll label stocks and two, the use of alternative papers for sheeted products like labels and graphic arts. In both cases significant cost savings are the final target of Degussa's label project activities.

Degussa is the global market leader in specialty chemicals. Our innovative products and system solutions make an indispensable contribution to our customers' success, which we sum up by our claim "creating essentials". In fiscal 2004 Degussa's 45,000 employees worldwide generated sales of 11.2 billion euros and operating profits (EBIT) of 965 million euros.
