Nexam Chemical extends its cooperation with Diab


Nexam Chemical is significantly expanding its collaboration with Diab. The collaboration agreement between Nexam Chemical and Diab was signed in 2015 as a development project, which laid the foundation for new high-performance PET-foam products containing Nexam Chemical’s NEXAMITE┬« technology. The collaboration now generates growing business with increasing volumes for Nexam Chemical as Diab is experiencing strong growth in the PET-foam segment.

Diab is a leading manufacturer of high performance foams and is growing strongly as the market expands. PET foam produced by Diab contains Nexam Chemical’s property-enhancing additive NEXAMITE® as a crucial component. Diab’s development will result in increased growth for Nexam Chemical, which will henceforth supply Diab’s production in Europe, North America and Asia.

“The increased cooperation with Diab is strategically important to us. Our NEXAMITE® technology provides major property improvements in PET foam and the market for PET foam is in continuous strong growth. We are now streamlining our production to meet this growth. Products with PET foam show strong competitive advantages in many applications, not least from a sustainability perspective. Our NEXAMITE® technology in Diab’s products contributes to increased durability at several levels – by creating lighter and stronger materials, as well as by application in renewable energy such as wind energy, ”says Johan Arvidsson, CEO of Nexam Chemical.

Composite manufacturer Diab is a global market leader in the development, manufacture and sale of core materials for various types of composite structures – including blades for wind turbines, in the manufacture of boats, aircraft, trains, buses and in building construction. Diab’s materials are characterized by a unique combination of light weight, high strength, insulation and chemical resistance. By reducing the weight of the finished product and the need for maintenance, Diab’s materials help to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact throughout the product’s entire life cycle.
