MANNHEIM, Germany (Nov. 30, 2010)—South Korea's Shin Han Chemical Co. Ltd., has granted a license to Rhein Chemie Rheinau GmbH for tire tread marking inks.
This allows Rhein Chemie to manufacture and sell these tire tread marking inks using know-how from Shin Han Chemical in nearly every country around the world. The exceptions are North and South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Macao, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan and Mongolia.
Rhein Chemie markets the tire tread marking inks under the name Rhenomark MP.
Rhein-Chemie said the inks are water-based and offer good covering power, brilliance, bonding strength and water resistance. The ink also boasts a very short drying time for a water-based product, which means that the production process does not need to be modified.
