Solvay and Nexeo Solutions, Inc. announced that, effective April 20, 2017, Nexeo Solutions will become an authorized distributor of the Solvay AEROSOL Surfactant Chemistry, formerly sold by Cytec Industries Inc., in the United States and Canada. This decision comes as a result of consolidation and rationalization efforts that will help Solvay focus on the continued development of solutions for the Coatings, Emulsion Polymerization and Industrial markets. Solvay acquired Cytec Industries Inc. in 2015. Solvay will continue to supply these products with the same manufacturing location, process and sales specifications.
“We see a lot of development opportunities in this product line,” said Joey Gullion, Vice President of Specialty Chemicals at Nexeo Solutions. “Solvay is a leading global supplier of sulfosuccinate surfactants. The AEROSOL® Surfactant product line is an industry standard in many of our key markets.”
