Emerald Kalama Chemical, a business group of Emerald Performance Materials, recently announced the completion of its latest capacity expansion for K-FLEX®non-phthalate plasticizers at its Kalama, Wash., facility. This is the second expansion for the K-FLEX product line at the facility, reportedly doubling its capacity since 2011.  

“The growing demand for our K-FLEX platform, coupled with the success of our latest product innovations, has fueled the need for our most recent expansion,” said Shamsi Gravel, product line manager. “Over the last several years, we have been expanding our range of products into new applications to introduce more environmentally friendly products that provide performance advantages to our customers. During this time, we have launched five new products and filed four patent applications, demonstrating our value in a range of coatings, vinyl plastisol, adhesives and sealants, and graphic arts applications. This strategy is in direct response to changing needs in the marketplace as companies seek viable alternatives for phthalate plasticizers and high-VOC coalescents.”
