UNIONTOWN, Ohio—Dalton Dynamics has selected ChemSpec Ltd. to distribute its Chemitac band of elastomer adhesives in the U.S. and Mexico.
The Chemitac line is designed to adhere elastomer polymers to metal substrates, including ACM, AEM, EPDM, FKM, HNBR, IRR/BIIR, NR, PU and SBR, among others. ChemSpec said the line is produced using nano-grinding technology.
ChemSpec added that rubber-to-metal bonding is a common necessity in many elastomer-related industrial sectors including automotive, aerospace, chemical production, anti-vibration, defense, mining and oil and gas.
"These are manufacturing sectors that ChemSpec is very familiar with and already actively selling products," ChemSpec President Dave Moreland said in a statement. "Consequently, Dalton Dynamic's selection of ChemSpec to promote these materials in these, and other manufacturing sectors, I think is setting the stage for a very successful relationship moving forward."
Dalton Dynamics is one of five international subsidiaries of Dalton Group, based in Sao Paulo. The group focuses on manufacturing and marketing industrial adhesives intended to attach a diversity of substrates to raw rubber.
It produces its Chemitac brand at three locations—Brazil, Spain and Gaston, N.C. The firm operates sales offices or distribution networks established throughout the world.
Based in Uniontown, ChemSpec is a chemical distribution firm and a subsidiary of France-based Safic-Alcan.
