Darren Soo, Head of Sales, ASEAN, BU Additives Clariant said, “We believe that Connell Brothers will be able to offer the highest level of professionalism and an exceptional level of service. Their capabilities and full market coverage will enhance and further develop this important sector of the Clariant business.”

Clariant’s Business Unit Additives is a major supplier of products for functional effects in plastics, coatings and printing inks.

Clariant’s high quality waxes are used in protective coatings, plastics, polishes and in a range of highly specialized applications like hot melts. It also produces polymer additives such as antioxidants, processing/ light stabilizers, and antistatic agents to give plastics flexibility and durability, or to improve the heat, light and weather resistance of coatings.
