New patent about to be approved for Nexam Chemical


Nasdaq First North-listed Nexam Chemical – which invents, develops, produces and sells additives to the plastics industry worldwide – has received confirmation that a new patent will be approved. The patent naturally falls under Nexam’s single largest application area, PET foam, and concerns an additive combination that can improve the processing properties of polyester materials. It is the first new patent obtained in several years.

With the help of this new additive combination, it is possible to further improve the production of high-value core materials for, for example, wind turbine blades. The patent concerns melt modification of polyesters using reactive additives. In addition to that, there is an expectation that the patent can be useful both in the fiber area, where clothing fibers are often made of polyester, and general recycling of polyesters.

“This patent will be able to further improve our position in the PET foam market. The toolbox of additives that we can offer our customers is becoming larger and more competitive. We expect to be able to sell materials in the patented area already within a year,” says Johan Arvidsson, Nexam Chemicals CEO and continues:

“We have recently been active with patent applications. However, the road to an approved patent is quite long, which is why we are extra proud to have succeeded in this. Something that benefits our customers in both current and future area”
