In Connecticut, Galata Chemicals is introducing their Drapex Alpha, natural oil-based primary plasticizer technology.  Drapex Alpha is a 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.  The product has been market tested and is commercially available from Galata Chemicals’ production facilities in Europe and North America.
