Key Facets of Synthomer’s Aqueous Polymers Business
• Our products typically provide one or both of two critical functions
– Provide a barrier
– Bind or stick two or more components together
• We don’t sell a chemical – we sell a formulation
– Intimate knowledge of customers’ products/production process AND frequently
their customers’ products/production process
– Significant technical service element to sales
– Deep “know-how” required to be successful
• 50% water
– Logistics costs rapidly become a significant proportion of total cost
– Need to manufacture close to customers
– “In Built” defence mechanism to “Out of Region” competitors
• Range of polymers
– We have the broadest range of aqueous polymers of all of our major competitors
