Emerald’s range of additives and resins include K-FLEX® Non-Phthalate Plasticizers for PVC, Good-Rite® 3114 Antioxidant, and Kalama® Sodium Benzoate nucleating agent. These products help manufacturers to produce extremely tough, durable, and high performing plastics and vinyl. They also improve productivity and minimize the health, safety, and regulatory concerns associated with phthalates and other plasticizer chemistries under scrutiny.
K-FLEX® Dibenzoate Plasticizers are high solvators for vinyl, plastisols, vinyl leathercloth, resilient vinyl flooring, and extruded tubing. K-FLEX Plasticizers provide excellent compatibility, stain resistance, extraction resistance, wear layer toughness, and handling (low temperature flexibility), as well as increased processing speeds and lower processing temperatures.
Good-Rite® 3114 Antioxidant is a high purity, phenolic antioxidant first invented and patented by Emerald’s predecessor. We continue to provide a reliable, consistent supply of high quality 3114, which is highly valued as a non-yellowing antioxidant for plastics.
Kalama® Sodium Benzoate is used as an economical, efficient nucleating agent in polypropylene manufacturing, where it optimizes economy and productivity.
Purox® B Liquid Benzoic Acid is used in HDPE filaments and thermoplastics elastomers, resulting in high-strength filaments for applications such as fishing nets.
Very high solvating, dibenzoate plasticizer for outstanding stain resistance and durability in vinyl, as well as a low-VOC coalescent for Ecolabel paints; exceptional low temperature flexibility
Most versatile dibenzoate plasticizer, offering exceptional low temperature flexibility and compatibility with a wide range of polar polymers and rubbers; excellent choice for many high-solvating plasticizer applications
Versatile dibenzoate plasticizer for performance in vinyl, adhesives, sealants, and coatings, offering excellent compatibility with polar polymers and a low freeze point for easier handling.
