Oxford Advanced Surfaces (OAS) (Yarnton, United Kingdom), which describes itself as a specialist in the surface treatment of polymeric, plastic, and composite materials via highly reactive carbene chemistry, recently announced new representation in China.

The new representative, Suzhou Composites Co. Ltd. (Suzhou City, Jiangsu, China), will support the full range of OAS surface treatments, which includes the new Onto EP1132. The Onto range of surface preparation products was developed to work with composites and a wide range of engineering plastics. It is equally effective on materials that are difficult to bond or coat, such as nylon. The products are available in spray and brush formulations, which makes them suitable for adhesive bonding or painting and lacquering applications. Onto is fit for use in both manual and automated processes.

“Developing the global network for our products is very exciting and allows us to easily share our products with the rest of the world,” says Terence Warmbier, head of business development at OAS. “We look forward to developing a strong relationship with China and hopefully expanding across other countries.”

Suzhou Composite Material Co. Ltd. says it focuses on the development, production, importing, and exporting of a variety of chemical products and composite materials. “Suzhou Composites Co. Ltd focuses on representing quality products to the Chinese and wider Asian market,” says Doug Yuda, general manager. “Adding Onto to our portfolio will allow our markets to have access to this innovative surface treatment technology.”

The Onto range has a variety of applications, including automotive, marine, agriculture, and energy. A spin-out after years of development at the University of Oxford, the technology allows for surface preparation without the need to etch or damage materials. According to the company, the patented technology already has proven applications and is designed to utilize the maximum potentials of many modern materials.
