We acquired the decorative films company Soliant LLC, which is now part of our automotive plastic coatings (APC) activities. It was a significant transaction because it expanded our product offering and means we can offer customers both normal liquid paints and coated films. Soliant’s expertise in formulating and processing coatings on films is industry leading. Their Bright Film technology offers a unique and sustainable way to create chrome effect components for the automotive market without the hazards of traditional chrome plating. Our primary application is on plastic automotive parts, such as bumpers. We also transferred the automotive interiors segment of APC to AkzoNobel Industrial Finishes and took over the vehicle refinish business of the former ICI, which operates in Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka.
