Henkel and Nihon Parkerizing announce extended cooperation to benefit global Surface Treatment customers
Henkel and Nihon Parkerizing Co. Ltd are taking their 27-year business cooperation to the next level with the signing of a broad license contract for surface technologies.
Effective from July 1, 2015, the new partnership extends a current cross license agreement on conversion coatings to a broader field of surface treatment products. The move will give customers, who are primarily from the automotive and aerospace industries, access to both companies’ technologies on a global basis. A distribution agreement for Japan covers Henkel’s Cleaners, Lubricants and Surface Treatment.
As a leading solution provider for adhesives, sealants and functional coatings worldwide, Henkel sets high standards for corrosion protection, paint adhesion and environmental safety.
Nihon Parkerizing supplies surface treatment chemicals to a broad range of industries for a diverse range of purposes including cleaning substrates, adding corrosion resistance, creating a base for painting and providing lubrication; as well as offering the latest knowhow and extensive technical support.
Angela Cackovich, Corporate Vice President and Head of the global Steering Units Surface Treatment and Cleaners and Lubricants, Henkel, comments: “Henkel has enjoyed a long-term partnership with Nihon Parkerizing since 1988. We are delighted to take this relationship to a broader, more intensive cooperation that will give our globally-active customers worldwide access to the full range of both companies’ innovative surface treatment technologies and products.”
