" We are excited to partner with Nexeo Plastics and become part of their extensive distribution network to offer our customers greater choice and excellent customer service across Europe," said Dmitriy Rybkin, Director of Marketing. " The resins in the Volgamid ™ product line offer the end user a wide range of choices, including sustainable recycled materials for high-end applications."

With two alternatives, the ECO-G6A line, a mix of materials mainly consisting of primary / recycled material, and the ECO-G6B line with 100% recycled material, manufacturers can address their sustainability goals in a targeted manner. Nexeo Plastics will also lead KuibyshevAzot's PA6 portfolio , which includes standard PA6 composites as well as unreinforced and lubricated Volgamid ™ -BXD materials.

" The agreement with KuibyshevAzot extends our reach in the EMEA region and improves the choice of standard and environmentally friendly thermoplastics for those who need solutions for a wide variety of applications," said Paul Tayler, president and chief executive officer of Nexeo Plastics.
