STAMFORD, Connecticut, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Rain Carbon Inc., a leading global producer of carbon-based products, today unveiled its upcoming line of hydrogenated resins – "NOVARES pure®" – at the FEICA European Adhesive and Sealant Conference in Riga, Latvia. The new "water-white" resins will be available in the third quarter of 2019, following completion of the company's resin polymerization and hydrogenation facility in Castrop-Rauxel, Germany.
"The development of NOVARES pure is a reflection of our increased emphasis on the Advanced Materials portion of our business, and it expands our portfolio of premium products such as CARBORES® and PETRORES®, which offer significant environmental advantages over competing products and serve a growing market for specialty applications," said Rain Carbon President Gerry Sweeney.
"NOVARES pure will enable our customers to meet evolving regulatory requirements and growing demand by end-users for cleaner and safer raw materials in consumer products such as food packaging and sanitary products, such as diapers," said Rain Carbon Chief Commercial Officer Kris Vanherbergen.
While technical data will not be available until 2019, customers can expect a number of important benefits from NOVARES pure, including:
Superior thermal stability
Fit for food contact
"Beyond the technical advantages of hydrogenated resins, the fact that NOVARES pure will be produced at our new Advanced Materials facility in Germany means that European customers will have a local source for hydrogenated resins, significantly shortening their supply chain," Vanherbergen said. European manufacturers currently rely heavily on imported volumes of hydrogenated resins, mostly from China.
