Nexam Chemical: Nexam's patent application regarding nylon resins containing MEPA approved in Japan

Nexam has received a notice of allowance from the Japanese Patent
Office stating that it intends to grant Nexam's Japanese patent
application regarding cross-linkable nylon resins containing Nexam's
unique crosslinker MEPA.

MEPA is a unique molecule that improves nylons, polyesters and other
polymers. Nexam developed MEPA with the aim of getting a crosslinker
specifically suitable for engineering plastics with melting points in
the range between 200 and 270 degrees, which comprises the majority.
Global production of plastics where MEPA can be used comprises more
than 3 million tons / year (corresponding to total sales of more than
USD 12 billion).

The uses for these engineering plastics are many. E.g. nylons are used
in a variety of applications, such as components for the
transportation, automotive, electrical and electronics industry.
Based on Nexam's technology for crosslinking thermoplastics
properties such as service life, heat resistance, mechanical strength
and chemical resistance are improved significantly. In addition it
also increases the possibility of replacing metals, and more
expensive plastics, with plastics modified by Nexam's crosslinkers.

The granting of the application in Japan will further strengthen
Nexam's protection for the crosslinking technology developed by the
company.

"This will be Nexam's first granted patent in Japan. The market for
nylons is relatively large in Japan, which makes us judge this patent
as valuable for the company going forward.", says Daniel Röme,
Director of Business Development and Innovation.

Nexam currently has 8 approved patents and 36 ongoing patent
applications within 12 patent families.
