Emerald Kalama Chemical, a division of Emerald Performance Materials, announced it has begun construction of a 60 percent capacity expansion for K-Flex non-phthalate plasticizers at its Kalama, Washington facility. The additional reactor capacity is scheduled to be commissioned in January 2013. This is the company’s second capacity expansion for the K-Flex product line at its Washington facility in the past two years. Earlier this year, the company also announced construction of a new K-Flex manufacturing site, which is underway in the Netherlands.

K-Flex plasticizers and coalescents are used in adhesives, PVC compounds, coatings and other latex polymer applications. In these applications, K-Flex products are known for enhancing film formation, adhesion, processing characteristics and improving the resistance of the end-product to oil, grease and water, according to the company. Other important benefits include improved scrub resistance, gloss retention in coatings, stain resistance and toughened wear layers in plastisols when compared with other materials.
