HEERLEN, the Netherlands - Royal DSM N.V., a life sciences and materials sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, has opened a new factory for waterborne acrylic resins in Waalwijk, the Netherlands.
The opening ceremony for the new factory, which was built at the existing DSM NeoResins+ production site in Waalwijk, was performed by Feike Sijbesma, CEO of DSM, together with Hans Wijers, CEO of AkzoNobel. DSM Resins, the business group that includes DSM NeoResins+, is one of AkzoNobel’s key suppliers of innovative resins used in a broad range of AkzoNobel’s coatings for a variety of end markets.
Waterborne acrylic resins manufactured by DSM NeoResins+ have far less environmental impact and are much more painter friendly than traditional solvent-based resins while offering high-performance and durability standards. The waterborne acrylic resins, which comply with current and future legislation regarding VOC, are used in coatings for joinery, decorative and industrial wood applications as well as in the graphic arts industry.
