Perstorp recently participated at the UTECH exhibition in Houston,Texas. The exhibition brings together all the most important international suppliers of raw materials and processing equipment as well as specialist polyurethane manufacturers. For Perstorp, it was an opportunity to showcase a broad portfolio with a focus on raw materials for polyurethanes.
“Perstorp’s booth was staffed with a mix of technical and sales people from both the US and abroad. It had a good position and was well-stocked with brochures and leaflets. We received many compliments about the booth’s appearance and our representation,” says Jeffrey Neidinger, Business Manager Caprolactones North America.
During the meeting, some high quality meetings took place with existing customers, prospects and potential suppliers. The greatest interest was in the isocyanate products and in Capa™ polycaprolactones. The combination of these two product lines can offer good hydrolytic stability, enhanced UV and outdoor durability, excellent flexibility and superior abrasion and scratch resistance to PU manufacturers.
Of special concern to attendees was the status of the new caprolactone monomer plant. A press release and supplemental leaflet were available at the booth along with a recent picture of the new monomer plant. This ongoing investment and commitment to the caprolactone business was well-received by Perstorp’s customers.
“I’m satisfied that Perstorp presented an impressive image as a quality supplier of many PU raw materials, and believe we will gain some substantial new business in part due to our presence at the show,” says Jeffrey Neidinger.
