PARIS-LA DÉFENSE, France – Safic-Alcan, an international specialty chemicals distributor, announced the extension of its partnership with Evonik to new products and new territories.

For many years, Safic-Alcan has been working with Evonik for the distribution of its silicas (AEROSIL® and ACEMATT®) in France and Benelux, and with the Air Products Specialty Additives (SURFYNOL® and DYNOL™) in France and Belgium.
