  • By ICN Bureau | April 12, 2023

Univar Solutions, a leading global solutions provider to users of specialty ingredients and chemicals, today announced its selection as Patcham USA, LLC's exclusive distribution partner of PATcat™ metal catalysts in the United States. Patcham's metal catalysts, both tin and tin-free, are used to improve the properties of polyurethane systems and will complement Univar Solutions' strong polyurethane additives portfolio.

"We're excited to work closely with Patcham and appreciate the trust placed in Univar Solutions," said Chris Fitzgerald, global vice president, CASE, Rubber and Plastic Additives for Univar Solutions. "With this agreement for PATcat catalysts, not only are we enhancing our versatile, high-performance polyurethane systems product line, but more importantly we're providing customers access to our extensive sales team, application-specific technical support, and broad complementary product portfolio, helping drive new growth opportunities."

PATcat catalysts are widely used by formulators in a range of industrial applications. As general purpose and fast-acting substances they are designed to accelerate the speed of chemical reactions and impact curing properties to produce high quality polyurethane adhesives. Tin free catalysts compounds are viewed as efficient and versatile alternatives that may be more environmentally accepted.

"Our new partnership with Univar Solutions will allow even more customers in the United States to benefit from Patcham's strong product development, technical support, and manufacturing experience in metal catalyst materials," said Nishith Patel, CEO, Patcham USA. "We continue to expand our portfolio to address growing market demands for catalysts, enabling customers to meet performance, sustainability, and profitability challenges in the polyurethane application space."
