Brenntag Specialties, Inc., expands distribution agreement with BASF

Brenntag Specialties, Inc., part of the Brenntag Group, the global market leader in chemical distribution, will become the exclusive distributor for BASF's amine curing agents in the Western and Southwestern United States, effective October 15, 2019.

The Baxxodur® amine product line, including Polyetheramine (PEA) and Isophroediamine (IDPA), is composed of prepolymers, curing agents, and chain extenders. They can be used in many applications such as epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea coatings, adhesives, sealants, and flooring.

"We are proud to expand our relationship with BASF. This collaboration provides our customers the convenience of developing and sourcing their entire formula from one source. In addition, customers are fully supported with a dedicated team of industry experts and a broadened product portfolio," states Ted Davlantes, Vice President, Coatings & Construction, Brenntag North America. "BASF's Baxxodur® amine curing agent product line is among the world's most comprehensive. It continues our specialties growth strategy and further solidifies Brenntag's position as supplier of choice in the coatings and construction market."

BASF offers a broad portfolio of amine-based curing agents, such as polyether amines, aliphatic and cycloaliphatic amines, and includes over 20 different types of chemistries sold under the Baxxodur® name. This product line allows customers to achieve a wide range of benefits in their formulation, including curing time, hardness, flexibility, peel strength, and temperature resistance.

Primarily manufactured at BASF headquarters, located in Ludwigshafen, Germany, these curing agents differ in molecular structure, basicity, and in the type and number of their functional groups. This difference helps to control the curing reactions and the properties of the cured thermosets.
