The collaboration now generates growing business with increasing volumes for Nexam Chemical as Diab is experiencing strong growth in the PET-foam segment.

Diab is a leading manufacturer of high performance foams and is growing strongly as the market expands. PET foam produced by Diab contains Nexam Chemical's property-enhancing additive Nexamite as a crucial component. Diab's development will result in increased growth for Nexam Chemical, which will henceforth supply Diab's production in Europe, North America and Asia.

Johan Arvidsson, CEO of Nexam Chemical said:

“The increased cooperation with Diab is strategically important to us. Our Nexamite technology provides major property improvements in PET foam and the market for PET foam is in continuous strong growth. We are now streamlining our production to meet this growth. Products with PET foam show strong competitive advantages in many applications, not least from a sustainability perspective. Our Nexamite technology in Diab's products contributes to increased durability at several levels - by creating lighter and stronger materials, as well as by application in renewable energy such as wind energy”
