The Cyclics Corporation named the P-Group, headquartered in Italy, as the sole compounder of CBT resin-based materials for the European rotational moulding market.

In exchange for this exclusive agreement, the P-Group has agreed to purchase significant volumes of Cyclics’ CBT resin for the next few years. This agreement commits a significant portion of the Cyclics resin plant currently under construction in Schwarzheide, Germany. The plant is expected to be completed by the end of 2004 and will have an initial annual capacity of 2500 metric tonnes (5.5 million pounds), with plans to double the capacity in 2006. Additional terms of the agreement were not available.

According to Cyclics, CBT resin has been demonstrated to make parts in traditional rotational moulding equipment with better surface finish, fibre reinforcement, and improved gasoline barrier properties over traditional rotational moulding plastics.

“The technical and marketing expertise of the P-Group in engineering plastics together with our supply of CBT resin will drive growth for both companies in the years to come,” said Roman Eder, Managing Director for Cyclics Europe GmbH. “Our alliance with the P-Group gives us the ability to take advantage of the growing rotational molding market for our resin,”

“Cyclics’ resin offers a great opportunity for us to leverage our processing expertise to formulate products for rotational moulding applications.” remarked Vittorio Bortolon, President of P-Group. “The exciting benefits that CBT resin brings in easier processing and improved performance will open up new markets and applications.“
