Conventus Polymers to sell LG Chem materials

News 05.09.2017

Conventus Polymers LLC, a leading distributor of high-performance engineering thermoplastics, has been named a distributor of LG Chem’s extensive line of engineering thermoplastics in the U.S. and Canada. The agreement with the South Korean supplier, effective July 20, covers a broad range of compounded materials in LG Chem’s LUPOY®, LUPOX®, LUMID®, and LUSEP® product portfolios. These include polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS), siloxane PC copolymers, polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), PC/PBT, nylon, and polyphenylene sulfide (PPS).

Conventus will sell a range of LG Chem materials from traditional glass/mineral filled and flame retardant grades to specialty/niche compounds primarily for injection molded applications in the electrical/electronics and lighting industries.
Conventus offers a highly technical focus and unique expertise and strong relationships with key OEMs. The company’s highly focused approach within key end-use markets and its ability to develop new applications will be critical in expanding penetration of LG Chem materials in the U.S. and Canada.

“We welcome this new distribution arrangement, which expands our portfolio options for our customers,” said John Jorgensen, President of Conventus Polymers. “LG Chem is a globally recognized brand with high-quality products that are uniquely positioned in our portfolio of materials. Our strategy to align our business with global industry leaders is further solidified by this agreement with LG Chem.” Conventus will provide all technical marketing, account management, application development, and customer service support.

Specifically, Jorgensen said the PPS line fills a gap in the Conventus product portfolio while the addition of siloxane PC copolymers is an “exciting” addition because it expands market availability beyond the single source that exists today. Jorgensen also noted that LG Chem offers an attractive business opportunity due to the depth of its UL portfolio. Many of the company’s materials carry extensive UL certification (UL94, UL746, CTI, RTI, HWI, glow wire ratings) which provide significant advantages for specifying OEMs.

LG Chem’s broad offering for the lighting industry, including diffusion, thermally conductive, and highly reflective grades, is also a strong complement to Conventus’ current offering
