Univar Solutions Inc., a global chemical distributor based in Downers Grove, Illinois, U.S.A., has been selected to distribute INOVYN's full line of CERECLOR™ chlorinated paraffins in the United States. UK-based INOVYN is wholly owned by INEOS, one of the world's largest chemicals companies.
CERECLOR™ is a leading brand of chlorinated paraffins with properties well-suited to serve in applications and end-markets that include: metalworking and metalworking fluids, PVC enhancement, coatings, sealants and adhesives, single component polyurethane foams and rubber chemicals.
These chemistries offer several application-specific benefits such as prolonging the life of machine tools and helping to prevent welding, seizure or scuffing during metal cutting or metal forming operations under high load and extreme pressure. Additionally, these chemistries act as a plasticizer imparting flame retardant properties and improved stain resistance in PVC, rubber, and coating applications.
"The combination of Univar Solutions and INOVYN provides market-leading capabilities to customers that will help drive next-generation solutions," said Stephanie Epply, INOVYN's North America commercial manager. "Customers across the U.S. in key end market segments will benefit from Univar Solutions' extensive supply chain network, commitment to customer success, and leading digital technology."
"Univar Solutions is excited to announce this relationship with INOVYN and to offer their market-leading CERECLOR™ line to customers in a wide variety of industries," said Mark Fisher, president of Univar Solutions, U.S.A. "Adding a robust chlorinated paraffin line to Univar Solutions' already leading portfolio positions us well to offer our customers the best range of base and specialty chemicals serving end markets such as lubricants and metalworking fluids."
