Crodamide is the world leading range of slip and anti-blocking additives from Croda. Manufacturing for over 50 years, we have gained unrivalled experience and knowledge in production, application and research in this area.
As a speciality polymer additives company, achieving tailored slip performance via the optimisation of product combinations has become one of our technical strengths, and is an exciting area of development for the polymer additives team. By understanding additives at the molecular level, from the seed growing stage onwards, we can offer a superior range of primary amides, secondary amides and secondary bis-amides with precisely controlled functionality.

What makes Crodamide different to other amides?
Security of supply
The Crodamide range is manufactured at three independent manufacturing sites to ensure maximum security of supply. These manufacturing sites are based in the UK, Netherlands and China. This ensures we can supply product to customer where and when they need it.
We are doubling the capacity of our flagship Crodamide manufacturing site in Hull, United Kingdom, to meet the growing demand of our customers. This £27million investment is the second biggest in our company history and ensures we can continue to offer faultless supply of amides when our customers need it. It will enable improved consistency or product and ensure no variation in application use. More space on the plant will mean more space to deliver new and innovative products that answer the unmet needs of our customers.
Local warehousing allows us to keep stock close to customers and reduce lead times, while back integration of raw materials ensures a consistent and reliable supply chain.

Sustainably sourced and manufactured
Sustainable transport options are used where possible to reduce carbon emissions. For example, at our Hull site raw materials are transported by barge, displacing approximately 1000 trips by road tanker. Our on-site wind turbine contributes to our 100% green energy use and reduces our carbon emissions by 2000 tonnes per year.
We are world leaders in surface science and the application of additives into plastics, with over 30 years experience delivering first class technical support to our customers. Our global R&D teams have a long history of collaborating with customers to develop new solutions and innovations. Our knowledge of processes and additives ensure the most optimised solution and processing conditions are recommended. We have the ability to perform testing on behalf of customers in our state-of-the-art laboratories to help relieve the burden of approval and make NPD more efficient.
