TopChim NV/SA was established in June 1996. We are a research driven chemical company, specializing in paper and cardboard coating technology, based in Belgium and Brazil. Our operations are focused on Europe, North and South America. We apply the latest technologies in chemical science to develop high-performance ecological coating solutions for the paper and cardboard industry. The pioneering work in chemistry and biopolymer technology is the result of active collaboration with European institutes and universities involved in our fundamental research. The research efforts of our science department have been translated amongst other things into the production of waterborne dispersions of biopolymer pigments on an industrial scale. "TopChim is committed to continuing its search for solutions for optimal paper and board coating production that are both environmentally friendly and economically attractive", says Henk Van den Abbeele, President - Director R&D. "We are focused on the success we can bring to our customers' operations through innovation".
