LONDON (ICIS)--Perstorp has formed a partnership with Netherlands-headquartered specialty chemicals producer Purac to develop caprolactone lactide co-polymers for the plastic, coatings and adhesive markets, the Swedish producer said on Thursday.
Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed.
The new caprolactone lactide co-polymer will be launched to the market by Perstorp during 2013.
“With Perstorp’s strong position in specialty products for coatings and plastics, our respective skills and experience comprise a good foundation for a successful venture and means that we are expanding our CapaTM range with a partly renewable product,” said Perstorp’s market development director, Hakan Bjornberg.
Perstorp said possible uses for this new caprolactone lactide co-polymer are, among others, as polyols for coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers and for biodegradable plastics and hot-melt adhesives.
