German resin company Lanxess AG has combined the activities of the former Rhein Chemie and its Lanxess functional additives business into a new Rhein Chemie Additives business unit.
The new Rhein Chemie business unit has a range of products including flame retardants, plasticizers, crosslinking agents, catalysts and hydrolysis stabilizers for rigid and flexible foams and CASE formulations, the company said.
The two business units merged Jan. 1. Rhein Chemie Rheinau became part of Bayer in 1971, after operating independently since 1899. It was spun off as a division of Cologne, Germany-based Lanxess in 2004.
