Perstorp’s new products & investments to support growth in South America

Our winning formulas for coatings and adhesives formulators enable our customers in South America to capitalize on the rapidly growing market in the region. Especially now, as Brazil gears up to host the 2016 Olympic Games, investments in construction and infrastructure projects are booming. And customers are placing high demands on quality, safety, and environmental performance. 

Our Charmor™ products offer formulators best-in-class intumescent coatings to protect people and property. And our Capa™ polycaprolactones enable solvent-free PUDs with best flexibility and strength.  Already the world’s largest supplier of caprolactone and derivatives, we now offer twice the production capacity with the opening of our second Capa™ stream at our Warrington, UK plant. In response to the rapidly growing demand for caprolactones worldwide, we are committed to helping secure long-term availability.

We also offer our new Easaqua™ X L 600 polyisocyanate for easy dispersibility and improved humidity resistance in waterborne polyurethane coatings and further solutions for environmentally friendly coatings. To help formulators meet these demands, we have also increased our presence and our local customer support in the region, headed from Sao Paulo, Brazil by new Regional Manager Claudio Gaino.
