Kustom Group is proud to announce the completion of phase 1 of our new wax compound expansion. The add-on to our building is under roof and ready to have our additional production lines put in. These additional lines are slated for operation in early 2016. In the meantime, our wax line one is fully operational, and we are making various wax compounds on an every day basis.
With the recent changes to the California Proposition 65 Reporting and Labeling standard to include even trace amounts of compounds like Benzophenone and Bis-Phenol A, most energy curable coatings currently produced and used in the market are now be required to be labeled. In response to this change, Kustom Group is proud to announce the development of KS-811, which is a new UV gloss coating formulated with only Prop 65 compliant raw materials. Additionally, KS-811 can be looked at for low migration applications. The links below will allow you to see the Technical Data Sheet and Safety Data Sheet for KS-811. For samples of KS-811, please contact your Kustom Group representative.
Earlier this year, Kustom Group announced it’s acquisition of Lubrizol’s oil-based wax compound product line. In this acquisition, Kustom Group has acquired all of the associated Lubrizol formulations and processing equipment for these product lines. Kustom is proud to add the Lubrizol trusted product trade names of Top Flite™, Polytech™, Protech™, and Thermol™ to our stable of existing high quality products. As we have done with our acquisitions of Varchem and Lawter, our commitment to our customers is continued supply, service and support of products and formulations that they have come to trust over the years. Many of these customers are already customers of Kustom Group. For these customers, we believe that this transaction is a benefit in allowing them to consolidate their purchases. For those customers who are new to Kustom Group as a supplier, it is our goal to form new partnerships and earn their trust through a smooth transition to the Kustom made products.
