Advanced Polymer Trading is looking to partner with local manufacturers to expand the market availability of TAFMER in the CIS including Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Ukraine.

Advanced Polymer Trading (APT), an international trading company who specialise in the global trade of plastics, rubber, and petrochemicals, is expanding its network of potential local manufacturers for Mitsui’s TAFMER range of products.

TAFMER uses metollocene and Zigler-Natta catalyst technologies and is used as an additive with polyethylene, polypropylene and other thermoplastics like EVA to improve its physical properties.

“Part of our strategy for 2012 is to connect with more manufacturers in the CIS including the Ukraine and so on.” said Mr. Hamid Amiri, APT’s Managing Director. “TAFMER is an excellent copolymer range and we are focusing on promoting it in new territories.”

As part of its plans to promote TAFMER, APT is actively seeking local manufacturers in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) including Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Ukraine.
