UNIONTOWN, OH (October 3, 2019)— CHEMSPEC, LTD announces agreement with DuPont to become the exclusive distributor of DuPont™ Vamac® ethylene acrylic elastomer, effective January 1, 2020.  ChemSpec’s parent, Safic-Alcan, is also the Pan-European distributor for Vamac products. Vamac ethylene acrylic elastomer is engineered for superior thermal and chemical resistance. Widely used for automotive components, ethylene acrylic elastomer helps provide longevity in many applications, and delivers long-term durability in environments with diverse chemical exposure over a broad temperature range.  ChemSpec will distribute Vamac both in the United States and Canada.

Dave Moreland, ChemSpec’s President, had this to say about this new relationship—

Partnering with DuPont on its Vamac line is very exciting for ChemSpec. Firstly, we’re always humbled to be able to work with such a respected, industry leader, such as DuPont and be able to further develop DuPont products across the U.S. and Canada. And secondly, this elastomer product matches-up incredibly well with many of our other specialty additives that are already well-known ingredients in Vamac recipes. It also allows us to grow closer in line with our parent company Safic-Alcan’s offerings, since they represent the product across Europe. We look forward to working with Dupont and its Vamac elastomer in already-existing industries and within new technology-driven markets.

ChemSpec, Ltd. is a Uniontown, Ohio-based management-owned chemical distribution firm. It is a subsidiary of Paris, France-based Safic-Alcan. ChemSpec also has both Mexican and Canadian subsidiaries (ChemSpec MÉXICO & ChemSpec CANADA). ChemSpec distributes specialty chemical additives and specialty polymers into the North American elastomer mixing industry, as well as coatings, adhesive/sealant, inks, plastics and cosmetics compounding market segments.
