Distribution partnership between TER Chemicals and BNNano
Over the last decades TER Chemicals has placed a clear focus on plastics and polymer additives and always looks for technological improvements and innovations. The boron nitride nano tubes of BNNano are one of the strongest material forms that provide a combination of exceptional physical and chemical properties: 100x stronger than steel, 50x stronger than industrial grade carbon fibre and a temperature stability up to 850°C. Used in polymers, polyesters, polycarbonates and many other materials, this patented technology provides the highest level of thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, strength and stiffness. This opens a large field of applications for industries like plastics, microelectronics, ceramics, flame retardants, metals, textiles and even 3D printing.
As of April 2021, TER Chemicals Distribution Group will be marketing and distributing the boron nitride nano tubes of BNNano in the European Union. The two companies will use their shared values, expertise and product know-how to find the best approach and access to potential customers.
“We were not only looking for a transactional trading partner, but for a strategic partnership with technology and application expertise in the European markets. We are very excited and confident that we found the right partner with TER Chemicals, to cover and expand our business in the European Union.” says Steve Wilcenski, CEO and co-founder of BNNano.
