Arkema, a world leader in molecular sieves manufacturing, has expanded Azelis Americas CASE, LLC as its exclusive partner to handle sales of molecular sieves in the coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE) markets in all states of the United States.

Effective January 1, 2024, Azelis Americas CASE, LLC (Azelis) will represent the CASE business of Arkema molecular sieves across all the United States.

Azelis will use its extensive network of CASE specialized technical sales representatives to more effectively market Arkema’s Siliporite® molecular sieves products to Azelis CASE customers in its territory. Azelis will exclusively promote the Siliporite SA1720, NK20AP, NK30AP, NK10AP & G5XP range of Arkema molecular sieves powders.

With decades of CASE experience and a skilled technical sales team, Azelis is well-positioned to promote Arkema’s molecular sieves offerings in its territory. Azelis already has experience with Arkema’s molecular sieves line of products and this territorial expansion confirms our longstanding relationship.

Shiona Stewart, Azelis, MD, CASE US, states, “we are both honored and excited to become the exclusive provider of technical solutions of Arkema’s molecular sieves technology supporting our CASE markets in the US.  This partnership builds on one of the core Azelis strategic pillars fueling growth:  Driving innovation together to grow with our Principals.  We’re proud to be recognized for our technical strength in selling specialty chemicals and relationship management throughout the US.  We are very much looking forward to supporting Arkema’s vision for growth.”
