HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based vinyls producer Georgia Gulf and Galata Chemicals are collaborating to develop a line of flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC) made with a bio-based plasticiser, the companies said on Tuesday.
The plasticiser, called Drapex Alpha, is produced by Galata, and vinyl compounds with the plasticiser can be used for wire and cable, medical uses and general-purpose needs.
The compounds can be custom-blended at four Georgia Gulf facilities in Mississippi, the companies said.
