EXTON, Pa. (Aug. 19)—Sartomer Co. has formed a strategic alliance with Kaucuk A.S. of the Czech Republic where Sartomer will hold the exclusive rights and trademark use for the worldwide marketing and sales of Kaucuk's Krasol-brand polybutadiene products. Previously marketed within the Czech Republic and elsewhere in Europe, the Krasol products are used in the rubber, coatings, adhesives, sealants and polyurethanes industries. "Kaucuk's strong polybutadiene manufacturing capabilities are a perfect complement to Sartomer's worldwide presence in liquid polybutadienes," said Jack Potts, Sartomer senior vice president of sales and marketing. Sartomer plans to integrate the Krasol line, which includes 24 products and several others under development, into its Specialty Polymers Group.
