Arlanxeo signed an agreement with Saudi Aramco Products Trading company pertaining to the marketing and sales of EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber. The company will start to supply the new EPDM grades within the first half of 2018 under its own Keltan trademark with the extension KSA, that represents the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Maastricht/The Netherlands and Dharan/Saudi Arabia — By entering into this agreement, Arlanxeo intends to strategically expand its activities in the market for EPDM rubbers. With Keltan and Keltan KSA, the Dutch distributor will provide a broad EPDM portfolio with an own brand identity.

The EPDM Keltan KSA grades will be produced in Rabigh, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The EPDM plant in Rabigh is part of a fully integrated chemical complex which operates under the name Petro Rabigh with Saudi Aramco as a shareholder.

EPDM rubbers are used to manufacture seals and hoses in the automotive industry, gaskets and sheeting in the building and construction industry and bulls-eye and seals in the consumer goods industry. They offer a high resistance to water, ozone, UV, heat, and weather. In addition, they offer good dynamic properties and a wide temperature range, are extremely flexible, durable, and have outstanding electrical properties.
