Emerald Kalama Chemical Appoints New Sales Manager for Asia Pacific
Emerald Kalama Chemical, a business group of Emerald Performance Materials, created the new position of Asia Sales Manager, appointing David Keung to support growing demand for K-Flex non-phthalate plasticizers in the Asia Pacific region. Keung will be based out of the group’s Hong Kong sales office serving both Asia and Australia.
Keung has more than 12 years of experience in the specialty materials industry, serving in various technical, product development, business development and marketing roles. He joined Emerald after serving as commercial market manager at BASF East Asia Regional Headquarters Ltd, where he developed and implemented business strategy for Asia Pacific.
In addition to customer development, Keung’s responsibilities will include identifying and capitalizing on new business growth opportunities. He will have particular focus on the plastics industry, where K-Flex plasticizers - based on high-solvating technology - are valued for their ability to impart better fused gel strength, gloss and improved stain and extraction resistance, among other performance attributes.
K-Flex benzoate technology has a proven track record of over three decades delivering performance—a highly effective alternative that avoids the health and environmental concerns of increasingly regulated phthalate plasticizers and high-VOC coalescents. The REACH-compliant K-Flex platform provides a range of non-phthalate, non-SVHC products, including those with certain clearances for use in food-contact applications.
