Under the agreement terms, Nexeo Solutions will combine BASF’s specialty acrylic and methacrylic monomers with its regional expertise to offer customers solutions that drive operational efficiency and value.

At BASF, we continually look for ways to improve our customer's experience when sourcing the raw materials we supply,” said Heather Remley, Senior Vice President, Petrochemicals, North America.

Focus on Specialty Sales Process

We selected Nexeo Solutions to be our channel to the market because of their focus on the specialty sales process, their in-house technical capabilities and their vast logistical platform and market reach.

BASF's specialty acrylic monomers are highly complementary to both our existing customers and the markets that we serve,” said Joey Gullion, Vice President Specialty Chemicals at Nexeo Solutions.

Nexeo will carry forward BASF’s strategy of excellent customer and technical service, while utilizing best-in-class inventory management practices and multiple stocking points.

Specialty monomers are used in many industries such as coatings, paper, adhesives, plastics, lubricants and the oilfield industry to enhance a polymer’s performance in a targeted way. For example, they can improve chemical resistance, hydrophobicity, abrasion resistance, adhesion and weatherability.
