Milliken: Acquisition of Zebra-chem

Milliken has acquired Zebra-chem GmbH, a special compounding company which produces additive and blowing agent masterbatches for PVC, polyolefins and engineering thermoplastics—made possible by producing extremely small microgranules. As a result, the company’s products have very good flow properties and dispersibility.

Zebra-chem’s portfolio includes standard products as well as customer-specific developments for most thermoplastics and thermoplastic elastomers. Typical products are organic peroxide masterbatches, molybdenum disulfide masterbatches and blowing agent masterbatches.
