CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Keyland Polymer, Ltd. announced an Exclusive Sales Representation Agreement with RND Ltd. a sister company of Tekiz Makina Sanayi to promote UV-Cured powder coating chemistry and application technology in Turkey.

"We are extremely happy that we have reached this agreement with RND.

DVUV Holdings' three operating companies DVUV, DVUV Systems, and Keyland Polymer offer a complete UV-cured powder coating and application solution for a multitude of finishing needs and products.

Turkey has become an attractive market not only because of its size but because of its development into a strong and stable emerging market. The Turkish government has enacted numerous policies promoting R&D and industrial investment through grants and loan incentive packages. These incentives make Turkey one of the most attractive and favorable destinations for foreign investments and joint ventures.

Mr. Neil Avner Cikurel, Director of RND Ltd. states "One of our goals is to grow in the industrial applications field through strategic partnerships and alliances with formulators and developers of technologies like Keyland Polymer. Each customer is different and off the shelf solutions will not satisfy their requirements. We believe that combining dedicated formulation with the right UV Curing equipment improves our ability to develop unique and cost effective solutions for our customers."

RND's UV systems are successfully deployed in many different industries including printing and packaging, marble, wood finishing, printed electronics and field applied curing applications. RND's UV product lines include Desktop Conveyor Belt UV Systems for industrial use, UV roll coating lines, UV Curing Systems for flexo, narrow web and web applications, as well as UV curing systems for large format inkjet printers.
