Producing Partner Profile: Emerald Kalama Chemical
Emerald Kalama Chemical is an internationally respected corporation focused on toluene oxidation chemistry. Today, Emerald Kalama Chemical is the leading global producer of benzoic acid, benzaldehyde, benzyl alcohol, sodium and potassium benzoate and specialty derivatives such as hexyl cinnamic aldehyde, linear aldehydes and performance additives such as K-FLEX®dibenzoate plasticizers and coalescents.The phthalate-free products are the solution to formulators seeking environmentally friendly options. Additionally, these plasticizers improve the performance of the end-product.
K-FLEX® plasticizers, modifiers and coalescents are used because of their excellent performance and balance of properties. They are non-phthalate, low in VOCs, and have positive attributes from a product safety and health perspective compared to other choices.
The K-FLEX® product line continues to grow, to develop new technology, to expand into new applications, and meet the evolving needs of numerous industries. Many of the products also maintain certain FDA clearances for use in indirect food-contact applications.
One of the key properties of K-FLEX® products is their compatibility with a wide range of polymers, particularly polar materials. This makes K-FLEX® products highly effective in many of the most widely used non-olefin based polymers: vinyl-acetate, ethylene vinyl acetate, acrylic, styrenated acrylic, styrene-butadiene, PVC, polysulphide, nitrocellulose, nitrile, and polyurethane.
These polymers are also used in many end-use applications, including adhesives, sealants, caulks, paint, coatings, graphic arts, resilient flooring, vinyl wall covering and artificial leather.
