Hexion Specialty Chemicals, along with Tekle Technical Services, Inc. (TTS), have formalized an agreement to collaborate on commercial developments utilizing TTS’ natural fibre-based materials and Hexion’s industry leading resin systems.

Hexion will aid TTS in its efforts to develop unique composite materials that include:

▪ composite panels using agriculture, forestry and municipal waste fibre sources;
▪ engineered fibre mat products using agricultural and forestry fibres;
▪ structural insulated panels reinforced with natural fibres;
▪ natural fibre cement composites, and;
▪ fibre plastic composites.

Under the agreement, Hexion will develop resins, adhesives, catalysts and additives for use in TTS products, and will provide technical services and support from its regional forest products R&D centre located in Edmonton, Alberta.

“Combining Hexion’s industry-leading low-emitting resin systems with the natural fibre expertise of TTS will help TTS provide the construction industry with new, environmentally suitable products with enhanced sustainability characteristics,” said Carlos Nuila, vice president, research & development for Hexion’s Forest Products Division.

Hexion continues to supply systems that aim to reduce emissions in both the production environment and in finished products. “Hexion is committed to helping our customers continue to improve their products, reduce or eliminate product emissions and enhance product sustainability,” Nuila said.
