The distribution agreements, covering specialty grades not manufactured in the United States, had previously been handled by Clariant's Pigments & Additives Div. The products include polymer additives made by DuPont Polymer Powders, advanced polyolefins manufactured by Basell, and functional polymers made by Arkema.

the DuPont powders include a variety of resins (LDPE,LLDPE, HDPE, EVA, PS, PP, PMMA, and CPET) and are marketed under the brand names Coathylene, Gotalene, Abcite, and Flamulit. Besides plastic-related applications in masterbatches and glass-reinforced polyester compounds (SMC, BMC, and RTM), these additives are used in nonwoven textiles, paints, soaps, detergents, cosmetics, metal and paper coatings, and more.
