MCP Europe has made significant progress since our last update. We have upscaled the key grades from the Ecronova® KDA styrene-acrylic family of 0°C MFFT products. The Ecronova KDA styrene-acrylic polymer dispersions are ideally suited for architectural coatings on fresh construction materials as well as refurbished building surfaces. These products are APEO free and can be formulated for paint, primer, and sealer applications. These versatile polymers feature high filler loading tolerance, exceptional penetration into mineral-based substrates, and excellent water and alkali resistance.
Mallard Creek Polymers, Inc. (MCP) announced the acquisition of intellectual property from Ecronova Polymers GmbH in early April. The company is excited to integrate the Ecronova® and Ecrovin® into the North American market. The acquisition has added over 90 recipes including pure acrylic dispersions, styrene acrylic polymer emulsions, and vinyl acetate homopolymers and copolymers. MCP has developed a new company, MCP Europe GmbH, which brings sales, chemists, application experts, and business leaders from the past Ecronova organizations. These experts are ready to respond to your questions and challenges. MCP Europe GmbH will soon introduce styrene acrylics and pure acrylics using a high-quality set of tolling partners across Europe. The company is also working to continue to offer key vinyl acetate emulsions in North America and Europe. Ecronova KDA 60 and Ecronova KDA 30 are two of the first products MCP has scaled up in Europe. These are deep penetrating primers considered market leaders across the European region and set the industry standard for central and eastern European countries.
We are excited to discuss the progress on creation of MCP Europe GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mallard Creek Polymers, Inc.
We have been working to create a company, build a strong team, and upscale many of the Ecronova® products in state-of-the-art plants across Europe. This is the first of a series of letters we will publish describing our progress on each product.
