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.
