Our Products

Who We Are

Aquaspersions has a highly skilled workforce who engage and support customers.

We value innovation. Over 20% of the team at our UK facilities and global headquarters are trained chemists, enabling the development of unique solutions that respond to new market demands and requirements.

Our team’s experimental passion and meticulous eye for detail ensures our dispersions add value to a variety of end-use products, like coatings, adhesives, and rubber.

Our Team


Aquaspersions Ltd. is established

Aquaspersions Ltd. was established in 1974 and, since its formation, we have built up an enviable reputation as a manufacturer of high-quality, water-based additives, for the polymer latex, paint, and adhesive industries.


Aquaspersions Malayasia is established

Aquaspersions Malaysia was launched in 1992 to expand our capabilities to the region, but within a few years, a purpose-built factory was installed to supply the APAC region with increasing volumes. This facility supplies an extensive range of solutions but has a predominant focus delivering dispersions to the gloves market.


We begin manufacturing in Rawang

Aquaspersions Malaysia moved to a purpose-built facility in Rawang, Selangor. The location is 30 kilometers north of Kuala Lumpur with easy access to major roads and the important Sea Port of Port Klang.  The new manufacturing site and increased production capability ensures ease of supply into the local glove and rubber industry.




Halifax plant expansion

In response to increased demand and growing sales, we increased warehousing space at our site in Halifax in 2018.  The opening of additional warehousing helps free-up further space for further investment in 2019, with 25% increased expansion of production and manufacturing capacity.  These two major investments helped to further strengthen our position as a key supplier of aqueous emulsions and dispersions to synthetic polymer producers, users of natural lattices, and formulators of coating and adhesives.


Aquaspersions Ltd. is acquired by CBPE

Aquaspersions was acquired in 2021 by CBPE Capital from its founding family shareholders. The management buyout was led by our CEO, Dr Alan Bewsher, with the business continuing to operate from existing facilities in Halifax and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


Aquaspersions begins manufacturing in North America

Aquaspersions Limited announced it is investing $7.5 million to establish a new production facility in Broussard, Louisiana, USA. The facility will primarily supply critical components for the growing nitrile glove industry, establishing a key PPE supply chain base in the United States and further strengthening our supply positions.

State-of-the-Art Manufacturing

Different industries demand different technical properties from their additives. But high-quality, consistency, and reliability remains the same across the board.

Our continuous investment in dispersions research and development ensures these three elements remain Aquaspersions’ priority. Combining state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment with investments in R&D, process development, and analytical testing supports our innovation drive.

The Aquaspersions team is constantly seeking new ways to strengthen our product portfolio for a new and more sustainable future, with a range of AquarezBio material solutions for the packaging industry.


Comprehensive testing phases take place both in-house and at customers’ facilities to make sure our tailored solutions work with clients’ formulations.

We can make the most granular tweaks at every stage of the manufacturing process, which gives us the ability to develop products that provide a variety of industries with highly-technical solutions.

Combining our team’s expertise with advanced chemical processes is the performance differentiator between ‘good’ and ‘exceptional’, which makes Aquaspersions a trusted partner.

We recognise that the world is changing, and chemical production must do so, too. Aquaspersions takes a forward-thinking and hands-on approach to manufacturing, allowing us to make positive adaptions to our own processes and promote more sustainable practices within the additives sector.

Aquaspersions is committed to R&D for aqueous additives solutions that are as environmentally-friendly as possible, without compromising on performance. From the top down, we’re working on refining our processes to support our commitment to more sustainable activities, business-wide.


Our Locations

Aquaspersions was acquired by CBPE in 2021, which is allowing further investments to our manufacturing sites and capabilities.

Advanced production facilities are located in three distinctive geographical regions (Europe, North America, and Asia) that each specialise in developing and manufacturing our dispersions technologies.

We pride ourselves on providing customers with a continuous security of supply, worldwide, and invite you to explore the Aquaspersions facilities below.
