Sibur (Moscow, www.sibur.com) and German chemicals giant BASF have signed a Long-Term Cooperation Memorandum to supply additives used for polymer production and processing at Sibur’s production facilities. The deal provides for supplies of additives used to produce polypropylene, polyethylene, synthetic rubbers, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), and ABS plastics at Sibur's production facilities, with BASF also providing technical support. Additives help to protect polymers from harmful temperature, mechanical or light exposure.
