Van Horn, Metz & Co. to Partner with Archroma for U.S. Distribution

Reinach, Switzerland, June 3, 2021-Archroma has entered an agreement with specialty raw material distributor Van Horn, Metz & Company for the distribution of its Mowilith emulsions in the United States.

In particular, Van Horn, Metz & Company will premiere Archroma’s Core Shell technology for the first time to U.S. customers. Core Shell has been designed by Archroma's experts in Indonesia, one of the most challenging climates for wood and other materials. It combines hard and soft polymer particles to create relatively hard, yet flexible coatings, with scratch and dirt blocking resistance. The formulation also allows faster drying of the coating, with earlier blocking resistance.

Archroma is a supplier of polymer emulsion technology for waterborne coatings and paints. Its Mowilith emulsions are used by home decor manufacturers in Asia and Latin America to impart wood and metal coatings, concrete and industrial paints with high gloss, resistance to UV, water, dirt and scratch and weatherability. This helps to protect walls, floors and other surfaces, reducing the need for regular maintenance and increasing their durability.

Van Horn, Metz & Company-a specialty raw materials distributors to paints, coatings, plastics, rubber and other specialty industrial markets in North America-focuses on the latest technologies and high-quality products, with convenient stocking locations.
