Nordic Grafting Company A/S (NGC) was founded in October 2016 as a wholly-owned affiliate of Bjørn Thorsen A/S. Bjørn Thorsen has a global license agreement with ExxonMobil which allows NGC to utilize ExxonMobil’s patented technologies for grafting Vistamaxx™ performance polymers. This enables production and commercialization of the Acti-Tech™ compatibilizer portfolio.
NGC is rapidly expanding its know-how, expertise and market reach through the development and introduction of Acti-Tech compatibilizer. The range of products has identified fit in several active projects in compounding and recycling.
Acti-Tech compatibilizer is a new and innovative range of products from NGC. They have been developed on the base of maleic anhydride-grafted Vistamaxx performance polymers from ExxonMobil. Acti-Tech compatibilizer is manufactured through highly efficient melt-grafting processes, leading to high functionalization with controlled melt flow index (MFI) specifications.
Aiming to establish itself as a truly global source of innovative solutions, NGC has recently expanded its presence in the Asia-Pacific area. Together with its sister company, Customized Compound Solutions A/S (CCS), and Chongqing Techxanadu Industrial Co., Ltd. (TechXanadu), they have launched a production and commercialization joint venture in China, Nordic Grafting & Compound Solutions Co., Ltd. (NGCS). NGCS is scoped to produce advanced specialty compounds and compatibilizers targeted at replacing non-recyclable thermoset solutions with recycled thermoplastic solutions. In doing this, NGCS leverages the expertise, capabilities and market access of its co-owners.
Bjørn Thorsen commercializes special raw materials from leading manufacturers (such as BYK, ExxonMobil, Lubrizol, Cabot, Sun Chemicals, Venator and others), to customers in industries such as Automotive, Coating, Construction, Industrial, Medical, etc.
In recent years, Bjørn Thorsen has increasingly acted as true solution provider, by leveraging its considerable technical and processing know-how, as well as flexible and efficient logistics services from warehouses in several European and other global locations.
This broader capability is strongly reinforced by the development expertise of its manufacturing affiliates, Customized Compound Solutions A/S (CCS), Digital Serigraphic Technologies A/S (DST), Nordic Formulation Technology A/S (NFT) and NGC. They complement Bjørn Thorsen’s offering with their proprietary range of customized alloys, compounds, reactive polymers, dispersions and solutions in response to individual needs.
