Published on 2017-03-07. Author : SpecialChem

KRAHN CHEMIE has announced that it is the new distributor of precipitated silica products from PPG in Poland. Both companies already collaborate in Italy, where Pietro Carini, the Italian subsidiary of KRAHN, acts as sales and marketing partner of PPG for many years.

The Product Range of PPG Comprises of:

KRAHN PPG Partnership

  • Synthetic amorphous precipitated silica 
  • Performance silica products 

HI-SIL® Silica

  • They are used as reinforcing fillers for rubber and as thickening agents in the adhesives and sealants industry 
  • Help to achieve desired rheology properties and anti-sag/suspension performance with minimal impact on other system properties

The LO-VEL® flatting agents reduce the gloss of a variety of products including coatings, paints, lacquers, varnishes, while providing lower viscosity and better stir-in capability. AGILON® performance silica is a high-value technology platform of chemically-modified precipitated silica for tires and industrial rubber applications, which, for example, reduce the rolling resistance of tires or improve the heat build-up resistance of rubber compounds while overcoming productivity and environmental issues typically associated with traditional in-situ silica/silane mixing.

PPG’s Innovative Range of Precipitated Silica Products

We are very happy to broaden our existing portfolio for the Polish coatings and rubber industry with the silica products of PPG. As one of the top players, PPG offers a broad and innovative range of precipitated silica products which are from high quality and well accepted in the market,” said Jaroslaw Rogalinski, Managing Director of KRAHN CHEMIE Polska.

What we expect from a distributor is a strong and close relationship to the customers and a deep understanding of our products and their performance. This is what Pietro Carini has proven in Italy for many years, and this is why we appointed KRAHN CHEMIE Polska as our new distributor in Poland. We are sure that KRAHN CHEMIE will be a valuable partner for our customers and for us,” said Adam Riley, Sales Engineer, EMEA, silica products of PPG.
