Nexeo Solutions and Yparex Sign Distribution Agreement in Europe


Nexeo Solutions, Inc. has entered an agreement with Yparex B.V., a Dutch-based supplier of extrudable adhesive resins, to distribute products throughout multiple countries in Europe.

Yparex is a product family of The Compound Company, whose portfolio includes a range of tie-layer resins, coupling agents, and compatibilizers. “This partnership gives our customers access to high-performance adhesives for multilayer barrier packaging film, as well as solutions for polymer modification that are applicable across a broad range of industries,” said Shawn Williams, senior vice president of Plastics at Nexeo Solutions.

“Today’s packaging applications demand a number of material properties that cannot be generated by one single material,” said Yparex’s general manager, Wouter van den Berg. “Therefore, multilayer concepts are widely used in numerous application areas and industries, including barrier films for food packaging, industrial films with oxygen barrier, and medical packaging. By teaming up with a renowned distributor such as Nexeo Solutions, we are able to provide even more customers with our innovations.”
