MOSCOW (MRC) -- The Netherlands-based materials company DSM has announced that from January 2016 its Composite Resins business will be called Aliancys, said the company on its site.
This follows on from DSM’s announcement earlier in the year of a partnership with CVC Capital Partners which resulted in the formation of a new holding company and the start of DSM’s Composite Resins business as a separate unit.
DSM states that the Aliancys name, its focus on supplying quality resins, and the brand promise “Let’s Talk” shows the company’s commitment for close collaboration with its customers.
Bert Bakker, CEO of Aliancys said: "With a great experience and track record in composites, customers can rely on us for their business both today and tomorrow. So we look forward to building a healthy composites future together with our customers."
The management team of DSM Composite Resins is set to continue on as the management team of Aliancys. The company highlights that the products of Aliancys will also continue to be offered under the Atlac, Beyone, Daron, Neoxil, Palapreg, Palatal, and Synolite brand names.
As MRC wrote before, Royal DSM signed a partnership agreement with long fibre thermoplastic (LFT) specialist Plasticomp (Winona, Minnesota / USA) to develop bio-based LFT composite materials based on DSM’s "EcoPaXX" polyamide 4.10. The lightweight materials, which include compounds reinforced with glass fiber as well as carbon fiber, will be targeted at automotive and other performance-driven markets.
