Nexam Chemical: Nexam Chemical sign supply agreement with Diab

Nexam Chemical has signed a supply agreement with the Swedish
composite company Diab regarding NEXAMITE®-technology for the
production of PET-foam. Deliveries in the form of highly concentrated
masterbatch is expected to start during the first half of 2017. Diab
is one of the four largest manufacturers of high performance foam in
the world.

"It is very gratifying that our NEXAMITE®-technology is an important
contributor to a new and improved product for our customer. We have
shown that NEXAMITE® provides major improvements in the properties of
PET-foam. The growing market for environmentally friendly products
based on PET is an important application area for Nexam Chemical. We
look forward to the continued and enhanced cooperation with Diab",
says Nexam Chemicals CEO, Anders Spetz.

In December 2015, Nexam Chemical announced that a collaboration
agreement had been signed with Diab regarding development of a unique
high performance PET-foam containing Nexam Chemicals
NEXAMITE®-technology. The ambition was that the collaboration would
lead to the supply agreement now signed. The outcome of the joint
development is a product based on NEXAMITE®, "packaged" in a
masterbatch, which will be delivered to Diab. Delivering in the form
of masterbatch simplifies the mixing process and ensures a homogenous
product quality when NEXAMITE® is added in Diabs production

"We are very satisfied within Diab with our joint development together
with Nexam Chemical. It has delivered such positive results in our
high performance foam, that we are ready to take the next step in the
form of a commercial product and this supply agreement. As a leading
producer of high performance foam, we see an opportunity to create a
whole new generation of foam where we can use Nexam Chemicals
technology", says Diab CEO, Lennart Hagelqvist.

core material to various types of composite structures - including
wind turbine blades, in the manufacture of boats, planes, trains,
buses and in building construction. Diab material is characterized by
a unique combination of low weight and high strength, insulation
properties and chemical resistance. By reducing the weight of the
finished product and no need for maintenance, Diab materials
