Chem-Trend signs distribution agreement with Bjørn Thorsen A/S for its Lusin® product range

Chem-Trend has reinforced its collaboration with Bjørn Thorsen A/S, by appointing us as its official distributor of the Lusin® range of high-performance mold maintenance products for the Nordic and Baltic countries.

We are very proud to add the Lusin® line to our extensive distribution portfolio, thereby helping thermoplastic processors optimize production and protect valuable investments in processing equipment. Lusin® products improve process efficiency and product quality; they also contribute to lower maintenance, repair and operational costs. The Lusin® family includes the following use-focused product series:

• Lusin® Alro/blue = release agents – silicone and silicone-free; designed to improve efficiency, lower scrap and reduce operational costs.
• Lusin® Lub/yellow = lubricants – developed specifically for the thermoplastic injection molds to prevent breakage and seizure of pins as well as slides without staining.
• Lusin® Protect/orange = protective agents – created to guard the metal surface of molds and tooling used in thermoplastic processing against the attack of water, oxygen or other corrosive agents which are common rust-contributing factors.
• Lusin® Clean/red = cleaning agents – formulated to remove contaminants (e.g. waxes, oils, greases) and deposits of thermoplastic resins, colors and miscellaneous additives from molds or other surfaces without attacking or etching them.

The products are developed to work in conjunction with each other, in order to provide synergies and enhance their overall benefits.
