DSM to sell Yparex business to Resin

The Yparex business produces adhesive tie-layer resins that are extrudable maleic anhydride-(MaH)-modified and functionalized polyolefin compounds. These are used in industrial applications such as sanitary and heating pipes, floor and wall heating (or cooling), copper and steel pipe coating, film applications, cables and cladding panels.The Yparex business will be positioned as an independent company, headquartered on Chemelot Campus in Geleen, the Netherlands, and its current four employees will transfer to the new owner. Resin will sign a compounding agreement with DSM to retain production in Genk, Belgium, for the duration of a transition period and service agreements with DSM Ahead and DSM Solutions for ongoing R&D support.
