Allnex Expands Relationship with Lintech International as a North America Distributor
Alpharetta, Georgia, June 11, 2014—Allnex, a leading supplier in coating resins, crosslinkers and additives, has expanded its relationship with Lintech International. Effective June 1st 2014, Lintech International will broaden its portfolio by becoming a national distributor for Allnex’s broad range of ALNOVOL® and CYREZ ®products. These products are specifically designed for the tire and rubber compounding industry.
Lintech is a distributor of products such as ALNOVOL PN 760 and ALNOVOLUF 410. ALNOVOL PN 760 is a resorcinol free resin for rubber steel and textile cord adhesion. This product is a more environmentally friendly alternative to resorcinol or resorcinol-based resins and has similar or improved performance properties.
ALNOVOLUF 410 is an effective oil replacement resin for rubber processing. It is a solvent-free carbamic resin combining the properties of a processing add and reinforcing system. It functions to reduce compound viscosity, improves hardness and textile cord adhesion and can be used as a processing oil replacement in Apex, Bead and Textile cord compounds, while still providing favorable processing characteristics.
“Allnex is committed to providing superior service and support to all of our customers, and we are very excited to be working with such a well-established and highly-recognized distributor such as Lintech,” states Tom Kelly, Vice President for Americas. “This move will help ensure that our distributor customers receive the highest level of technical and logistics support possible.”
