NRC takes over distribution of Stepan products

Stepan's product portfolio contains commercial and industrial surfactants, nutritional oils, and polyester polyols for rigid and flexible polyurethane foam. With the company's 2013 acquisition of Bayer MaterialScience's polyester polyol business from the former plant in Columbus, OH, USA, Stepan was able to consolidate its market position in this part of North America and gain a state-of-the-art production facility. In combination with their Polish site in Brzeg Dolny, Stepan is now expanding business into the CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers) markets with its Stepanpol product range (aliphatic and aromatic polyester polyols). In Europe, NRC is currently distributing the following products in the Nordic countries via its subsidiary Kemi-Intressen and will be marketing them soon in Germany and Austria: The major end uses for these CASE polyesters include liquid and hot melt urethane adhesives, cast elastomers, thermoplastic polyurethanes and polyurethane dispersions, as well as energy cure and conventional cure surface coatings.
