Published on 2012-04-19. Author : SpecialChem

Southbury, CT -- Galata Chemicals is pleased to introduce Drapex® Alpha, a natural oil-based primary plasticizer technology.

Drapex® Alpha is a highly efficient, bio-based primary plasticizer that can be used in place of a variety of conventional petroleum-based plasticizers with similar cost performance attributes. Drapex® Alpha is suitable for a multitude of general purpose and specialty applications. PVC compounds containing the new plasticizer exhibit improved extraction resistance, substantially reduced amounts of volatile organic compounds, and enhanced processability.

"Given the growing consumer demand for sustainable products and phthalate alternatives, we are excited about launching an innovative product designed to address those needs" - said Dr. Luc De Temmerman, President and CEO of Galata Chemicals.

Drapex® Alpha has been successfully market tested and is commercially available from Galata Chemicals' production facilities in Europe and North America.
