DH Polymers recently signed a new agency with highly regarded Turkish engineering plastics company, Politem, to distribute its Nylon (PA6 & PA66) materials in South Africa.
This is the fourth major principal for which Gauteng-based DH Polymers is the official distributor in South Africa. Others include BASF (TPU Elastollan TPUs), Elastron (TPE, TPV Elastron SEBS and EPDM/PP) and CGFSE (FSE Fluoroelastomers and Perfluoroelastomers).
Politem, based in Çerkezköy, Tekirdağ in Turkey, started the production of engineering plastics in 2006. The company reinforces the principle of sustainable quality with the latest technology laboratory equipment present and a productive R&D team at its factory. Politem’s R&D facility brings alternative solutions to market innovations and carries out custom applications in pilot production lines allocated for R&D.
“DH Polymers is very happy to have landed the agency for Politem. They are a highly respected company internationally and their products are of a very high standard,” says Deon Holtzhausen, DH Polymers’ owner.
The Politem products which DH Polymers will be distributing in South Africa include all the PA’s (PA6 , PA6.6, PA6.6/6 unfilled and filled compounds).
DH Polymers also imports and distributes other specialty plastics and polymers, including chlorinated ethylene CPE, EPDM, Chloroprene, Silicon, HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, EVA, Polypropylene, ABS, PA, PA66 and EPS.
DH Polymers was established by Holtzhausen in April 2009 after he left Ultra Polymers where he had been a director and shareholder for close on 10 years. DH Polymers quickly built an excellent reputation as a steadfast and dependable distributor in the plastics industry, a reputation that remains untarnished to this day.
