Evonik combines Crosslinkers, epoxy curing agents businesses into one unit.

Evonik Industries AG will combine its isophorone chemistry and epoxy curing agents business in the new Crosslinkers Business Line effective July 1, 2017. The newly formed business line, headed by Min Chong, will be part of the Resource Efficiency Segment.

With the acquisition of Air Product's epoxy curing agents business and Evonik's long-time experience in isophorone chemistry, Evonik has a broad technology platform in crosslinker technology.

The new Crosslinkers Business Line offers a broad range of products and competences for coatings and adhesives, civil engineering as well as for high-performance elastomers and composites.

"Combining both businesses to one new unit gives Evonik the chance to offer a variety of products for epoxy and polyurethane applications under one roof now--be it basic amines, isocyanate monomers, polyisocyanates or formulated epoxy hardeners," said Dr. Claus Rettig, chairman of the Board of Management, Evonik Resource Efficiency GmbH.

The Business Line has a total of approximately 1,000 employees worldwide with production facilities in Europe, North America, and Asia.
