Biesterfeld and DuPont intensify their strategic partnership in CIS countries

Biesterfeld Plastic and DuPont are continuing the expansion of their strategic cooperation. Thanks to an extended agreement, Biesterfeld Rus LLC will take over responsibility for selling the Zytel®, Minlon®, Crastin®, Rynite®, Hytrel®, Bexloy® and Delrin® thermoplastic plastics in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan from 1 December 2019.

Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester-elastomers are ideal for components that demand excellent tensile strength and a large operating temperature range. The special features of this product are its ability to resist tearing and abrasion. The Crastin® polybutylene terephthalate resin not only has exceptional stiffness, but also has excellent hydrolytic stability and resistance to heat. Its primary uses include headlamp cover frames, plug connectors, relay connectors and water valves. Thanks to its exceptional rigidity and creep resistance, Delrin® is especially suitable for use in a variety of automobile systems and office machines, without the need for any reinforcement. Zytel® is a true low-friction all-rounder whose exceptional resistance to oils and fats is coupled with excellent resistance to fatigue. This product’s outstanding processing properties make it ideally suited to a myriad of different applications.

“We expect to see strong growth in Russia and the other CIS countries in the future, especially in the packaging, wire & cable, oil and gas as well as transportation industries,” said Martin Rathke, Product Manager, Biesterfeld Plastic. “Thanks to this new agreement, we can now make even better use of the synergies between the Biesterfeld and DuPont plastic and performance rubber portfolios and so offer our customers improved customer service closer to their home markets,” said Svetlana Dikina, General Manager, Biesterfeld Rus LLC. “We are absolutely delighted at DuPont’s confidence in us.”

“Biesterfeld is the ideal partner for us and will help us position our products even more effectively in CIS countries,” said Csaba Holop, Sales Director EMEA Transportation & Industrial at DuPont. “For this very reason, we decided to work even more closely together and have Biesterfeld take on responsibility for parts of our important business in the future.”
