    We encounter innovations in chemistry every day – even where we don’t expect to. They improve our quality of life. ACRESIN® is a smart chemical that stays sticky in wet conditions – it doesn’t matter if you are at the beach, in the swimming pool or in the shower. We are always improving our existing product portfolio. In 2011, around
    1,050 newly registered patents attested to this power of innovation.
