Azelis, a leading innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is pleased to announce a new distribution agreement with Hexigone, a UK-based manufacturer of smart corrosion inhibitors. Azelis will distribute Hexigone’s Intelli-ion®corrosion inhibitors across mainland Europe, Turkey, Ukraine, and the Baltics region.
Highlights & rationale
- This new mandate, focusing on ‘chemically-intelligent’ coatings, goes hand-in-hand with Azelis’ focus on sustainability and innovation
- The Hexigone product range allows Azelis to provide new solutions for anti-corrosion coatings and applications
- This new distribution agreement furthers Azelis’ strategy of organic growth with leading partners
Hexigone’s focus on sustainability and replacing traditional heavy metals, phosphates and toxic chromates with manufactured organic additives, is in-line with Azelis’ commitment to sustainability. The Hexigone product range offers superior anti-corrosion properties for a wide-range of platforms whilst being fully sustainable, partially manufactured from materials previously destined for landfill and increasing metal assets’ lifecycles. This agreement covers Hexigone’s Intelli-ion®corrosion inhibitors, which can be used in a wide-range of products, including protective coatings, architectural and construction, military and commercial aerospace, automotive OEM and refinishing, and powder coatings.
