Stocks in this article: OMG

CLEVELAND, Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OM Group, Inc. (NYSE: OMG) and AkzoNobel have signed an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement for OMG's Borchi® Oxy Cure accelerators. The agreement is limited to the curing of unsaturated polyester and vinylester resins in the composite industry.

"We are extremely excited about our partnership with AkzoNobel," said Mike Stanko, VP & General Manager for OMG's Advanced Organics business. "Their expertise and global distribution network will help us bring the Borchi® Oxy Cure product range to customers in the composite industry. At the same time, it allows us to fully focus on our core markets."

Steve Hunt, sBU Director XTP for AkzoNobel Functional Chemicals, explains, "OMG's Borchi® Oxy Cure products are an important addition to our Nouryact Cobalt replacement portfolio. The partnership with OMG perfectly fits our sustainable growth ambitions and strengthens our position as the world's leading supplier of thermoset curing systems."

Borchi® Oxy Cure is an alternative to Cobalt in the curing of unsaturated polyester resins and is based on a patented Iron ligand technology, originally developed by Unilever for detergents and acquired by OMG in 2011 for a range of application areas.
