News International-French

9 Oct 2012

DSM is introducing a new resin based on bio raw materials and manufactured in line with GMP. By combining this resin with natural quartz minerals Compac created an attractively new and sound product line in artificial stone.

Durable surface materials with superior aesthetics are greatly desired by home owners in their kitchens and bath rooms, as well as by architects for decorating shopping centers, offices, and public buildings. Compac, The Surfaces Company™, is a leader in the marketing of high quality decorative surfaces around the world. Compac has built a reputation of creating new colors in artificial stone, converting nature in beauty that lasts.


The new Synolite™ 7524-N-1 FC resin from DSM has a high content of bio raw materials and is produced in line with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). With this resin Compac was able to create a new range of brilliant stone products in a full range of special colors, suitable for food contact applications. Both in terms of aesthetics and consumer health & safety the Synolite™ 7524-N-1 FC resin and the Compac Bio Technological Quartz Collection™ are setting the standard for the industry.


“We are finding architects and private home owners becoming more conscious about the environment”, says Bernardo Ros, Marketing Director at Compac. “This translates in a desire for natural colors and surface effects, but also in a choice for materials originating from nature. The combination of the thorough understanding of consumer drivers by Compac, and the material expertise of DSM, has been instrumental for generating a unique touch and feel.”


“DSM continues to build a portfolio of resins based on renewable raw materials”, adds Robert Puyenbroek, CTO DSM Composite Resins. “We would like to offer the Composite Industry a secure source of supply, providing a sustainable operation now and in the future. The fact these resins are made in line with GMP will provide end-users with peace-of-mind, so they can enjoy the place they live and work.”
