DRT Launches New Resins


DRT, the owner of Pinova Inc. will join with global experts in coating and adhesives at the forthcoming International European Coatings Show, in Nuremberg Germany from April 4th to 6th. With the recent acquisition of Pinova Inc., DRT is pleased to add the Pinova ranges of products to their product portfolio and will be introducing the new additions at Nuremberg.

FORAL® and VINSOL® are two of the new ranges to be rolled out to the European market.

FORAL® products are refined wood rosins which are the palest and most highly stabilized rosins commercially available. They are mainly utilized in adhesives and marine paints applications. VINSOL® is a range of natural resins extracted from pinewood stumps and refined through a special process. VINSOL® products are produced exclusively by Pinova, Inc. and target the coating, construction and concrete manufacturing markets. Both groups are designed for this fast changing sector and deliver innovative, efficient solutions from naturally occurring feedstocks providing true sustainability and reduced environmental impact.

Since its creation, DRT has used plant-based resources derived from the forest industry. The research of alternatives to fossil based products is a primary corporate objective. With its bio-based resins, DRT supplies more than 20 industrial sectors from the adhesives market (including packaging, tape, tags, construction) to the coating and road marking industries. These products offer a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based ingredients. With their proven performance and cost-effectiveness, DRT products allow numerous industries to take a green shift.

As explained by Benjamin Léger, DRT’s Marketing Manager for Chemical Intermediates: "Our goal is to provide technical and economic solutions. The acquisition of the North American company, Pinova Inc., allows us to expand our ranges of resins to better answer the market’s expectations and future requirements. FORAL® is a tangible example of the kind of stabilized resins demanded by our customers today."

In addition to being known for its high quality products, DRT is also admired for its eco-responsible approach. DRT operations at all levels strive to be environmentally friendly, ethical and innovative – forming the basis of their corporate culture.
