MERACRYL: Röhm’s new brand for methacrylate monomers
- New MERACRYL brand launched
- Partnership and reliability remain most important customer promises
Röhm GmbH will be selling its methacrylate monomers under the new brand name MERACRYL going forward, thus replacing the old VISIOMER® trademark with respect to the methacrylate monomers offered by Röhm GmbH. Röhm’s monomers are used in a variety of applications, including coatings, adhesives, plastics, construction, and textile treatment. As the world’s second largest producer of methyl methacrylate (MMA), Röhm is now consolidating monomers such as MMA, methacrylic acid, butyl methacrylate, hydroxyesters, and methacrylamides under its new brand name.
Unique expertise in methacrylate chemistry
“MERACRYL stands for quality, reliability, and technological leadership. MERACRYL connects us to Röhm’s long-standing tradition in the methacrylate chemistry and brings our customer promises—long-term partnership, supply reliability, and excellent customer service—together under one roof,” explains Hans-Detlef Luginsland, head of the Bulk Monomers Business Unit.
Its four production facilities in China, Germany, and the US give the unit a presence in important countries all over the world. In order to ensure material availability, plant security, and gains in efficiency, Bulk Monomers continuously invests in optimizing its key technologies.
