CLEVELAND – U.S.-based specialty chemicals producer OM Group Inc. (OMG) and Rahu Catalytics have agreed to develop a long-term global license and supply agreement for novel technology in the field of additives for coatings, inks and composites.

According to the agreement, OMG will acquire the rights to use Rahu’s new iron-based FeONIX oxidation catalysts as driers in coatings and inks, and polymerization additives for composites.

OMG will introduce its new range of coatings and ink products at the European Coatings Show in Nuremburg in March 2009, presenting a technical paper at the parallel technical symposium.
