Royal DSM N.V. has opened a new factory for waterborne acrylic resins in Waalwijk, The Netherlands. Total investment costs amounted to €30 million.
The opening ceremony for the new factory, built at the existing DSM NeoResins production site in Waalwijk, was led by Feike Sijbesma, DSM CEO, and Hans Wijers, CEO of AkzoNobel. DSM Resins, the business group that includes DSM NeoResins, is one of AkzoNobel’s key suppliers of resins used in a broad range of coatings.
Waterborne acrylic resins manufactured by DSM NeoResins have far less environmental impact than traditional solvent-based resins while offering high performance and durability standards. The waterborne acrylic resins, which comply with current and future legislation regarding volatile organic compounds (VOC), are used in coatings for joinery, decorative and industrial wood applications as well as in the graphic arts industry.
