ACI Group secures Chem Additive distribution deal for waterborne performance additives

June 2023

ACI Group, a leading distributor working with some of the largest global food, pharmaceutical, industrial and road brands, has secured a new distribution partnership with Chem (Yueyang) Waterborne Additive Co. Ltd (‘Chem Additive’), a performance additive innovator based in Hunan, China.

The agreement will see the ACI Group product portfolio expand with the addition of three new Chem Additive products, as the China-based developer seeks to expand its European presence.

These products are the high performance Greesol™ G Series defoamer, the versatile Greesol™ E Series surfactant for water-based industrial coatings and pressure-sensitive adhesives, and multifunctional Greesol™ A04 Series of silicone-free surfactant ingredients with wetting, defoaming and dispersing properties.

Karsten Smet, Director at ACI Group, comments: “The agreement for ACI Group to supply Chem Additive products to the European market is a real coup, and further strengthens our already robust product portfolio in the Industrial sector. Chem Additive has proven the quality of its products across Asia, and we are confident that their performance additives will resonate well with our European customers. With a strong focus on products for waterborne systems, they’re an ideal choice to support the development of more sustainable end products.”

Chem Additive products are available as part of the ACI Group range today for customers to sample and test.

Suijun Yang, Overseas Marketing Director at Chem Additive, adds: “We are thrilled to embark on this strategic partnership. We share similar values and a commitment to delivering exceptional quality. At Chem Additive, we have a relentless dedication to research and development, ensuring that our performance additives remain at the forefront of the industry. Equally, ACI Group's reputation for excellence and expansive distribution network make them the ideal partner to make our high-performance additives easily accessible to customers. Together, we will support the development of more sustainable end products, particularly in waterborne systems, meeting the evolving needs of the European market.”
