Sun Chemical has formed a commercial alliance with SAPICI S.p.A. to market SAPICI’s lamination adhesives portfolio under the Sun Chemical commercial brand name.
The alliance allows Sun Chemical to market SAPICI’s lamination adhesives exclusively in North and South America, the Middle East and Africa. Products will be sold under the Sun Chemical brand and SAPICI brand names in Europe.
“This alliance combines the strong research and development capabilities of both Sun Chemical and SAPICI to provide the most comprehensive range of lamination adhesive solutions to our customers in the flexible packaging market,” says Felipe Mellado, chief marketing officer at Sun Chemical. “It also provides increased capabilities to comply with the most demanding present and future legislative regulations.”
Company officials say SAPICI’s portfolio complements Sun Chemical and its parent company, the DIC Corp.’s wide range of lamination adhesives.
“This significant partnership will allow SAPICI to truly value our continued R&D and manufacturing commitment, investments and capabilities, and continually share these with the global flexible packaging industry,” says Cristian Furiosi, CEO of SAPICI. “This agreement with Sun Chemical will make it possible to provide the global flexible packaging market with our innovative lamination adhesives, including such unique technologies as SAPICI’s zero-migration solutions, thus generating new measurable growth opportunities throughout the industry and its target applications.”
