FRX Polymers and Americhem Inc. announced today that they have entered into a multi-year exclusive distribution agreement covering Western Europe and Turkey for FRX’s new non-halogen flame retardant polymer known as FRX 100.  

FRX Polymers is the manufacturer and marketer of a new, environmentally friendly family of inherently flame retardant plastic. Currently in the growth phase of commercialization, FRX Polymers’ products are finding a growing number of applications, including textiles and carpeting.

Americhem is one of the world’s leading solutions providers to the synthetic fibers industry. It produces a range of masterbatches designed specifically for its synthetic fibers customers. 

“We are pleased to be partnering with FRX Polymers in the fibers industry,” said Dave Bouton, vice president of business development at Americhem. “FRX Polymers produces a unique flame retardant additive in that it is melt processable and sold in pellet form. This makes it especially well-suited for melt spinning into fiber resins, such as polyesters. We see a big potential for FRX Polymers in this market, and we are delighted to offer these products exclusively to customers in the European market.”

Marc Lebel, president and CEO of FRX Polymers, said, “We have been working with Americhem for a number of years now, and we have built a very strong relationship. Americhem is a world class organization and has a strong presence in the fibers market, making it an ideal partner for FRX Polymers. Customers will reap the benefits of this partnership, enabling them to introduce highly differentiated products to the market.”

FRX Polymers, Inc. was founded in 2007 following over five years of intensive research and development in the field of inherently flame retardant plastics. The company operates two pilot plants in Chelmsford, MA and a polymer pilot plant in Switzerland.

Americhem is a global organization that delivers custom color and additive solutions for customers seeking superior performance and batch-to-batch consistency for their polymer products. The company specializes in color and additive masterbatches, and single pigment dispersions, all backed by complete technical support that ensures quality, reliability and value.
