CINCINNATI (April 4, 2022) – Pilot Chemical Corp. today announced an agreement with Integrity Bio-Chemicals (IBC) to be the exclusive marketer of IBC’s Tegrasurf ™ line of high-performance biosurfactants into the North American Household, Industrial & Institutional (HI&I) markets. Tegrasurf ™ products offer a substantial reduction in carbon footprint relative to many conventional surfactants while also exhibiting superior performance in foam stability and surface tension reduction.
Partnering with IBC enables Pilot Chemical to offer a localized, alternative supply of nonionic surfactants to reliably meet the needs of the HI&I market. The Tegrasurf ™ line strengthens Pilot Chemical’s position in the biosurfactants market to address growing consumer demand for sustainable, biobased and biodegradable ingredients.
“Working with Integrity Bio-Chemicals complements our innovation efforts to meet the changing needs in the HI&I marketplace,” said Richard Rehg, vice president of commercial for Pilot Chemical Corp. “The addition of IBC’s biodegradable and sustainable products allows us to offer our customers another option.”
“The agreement with Pilot allows Integrity Bio-Chemicals to expand our novel surfactant technology into new markets with a leader in the HI&I space,” said Michael Suver, executive vice-president of IBC. “This partnership enables both companies to leverage their strengths and provide a new class of sustainable and high performing products to the market.”
The products will be available under Pilot Chemical label in the North American HI&I markets starting in August 2022.
