Solvay’s Adhesive Additive Receives 2021 Pierre Potier PrizeSolvay was awarded the Pierre Potier 2021 Prize* for its Addibond™ innovation in the presence of Mrs. Agnès Pannier-Runacher, minister delegate in charge of industry at the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Recovery at France Chimie's centennial ceremony in Paris.

Additive Offers Short Processing Time

Solvay's Addibond™ solutions are high-performance specialty additives for paint and adhesive adhesion on aluminum and galvanized steel. They create a true bridge between metal surfaces and organic coatings such as paints and adhesives.

The Addibond™ line offers many benefits including shorter processing times, lower cost of ownership, a more efficient conversion process and a more sustainable process.

"We are very proud to receive this trophy distinguishing innovations that meet the industrial and environmental challenges of our planet, for a more sustainable and responsible society," said Patrick Moreau, R&I industrial process solutions and coatings director for Solvay. "Addibond™, developed by our teams at the Aubervilliers research & innovation center, responds to a twofold problem. On the one hand, to improve adhesion performance and on the other hand, to reduce the environmental impact thanks to an extension of the lifespan of the bonding of metal parts."

* The Pierre Potier Prize was created in 2006 by the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Industry, and is now supported by the Fondation de la Maison de la Chimie and France Chimie. Its aim is to promote and encourage innovation by chemical companies in favour of sustainable development. Awarded by a jury composed of personalities from research, industry and ministries, this prize has become a reference label for business supporting organizations.
