Emerald Kalama Chemical BV, a division of Emerald Performance Materials, Cuyahoga Falls, OH, USA, announced that it has started the construction of a new operation to produce K-Flex non-phthalate plasticizers and coalescents at its facility in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The new operation is scheduled to be commissioned during the third quarter of 2012.

Emerald Kalama Chemical acquired the Rotterdam facility from DSM in December 2010. K-Flex glycol dibenzoate esters are fast fusing, high polarity plasticizers for a wide range of applications, such as vinyl flooring, coatings, adhesives, sealants and caulks. They have a low VOC content and are non-SVHC and readily biodegradable. These plasticizers are also cleared for use under certain FDA food-contact regulations. The K-FLEX products currently manufactured in the U.S. and exported to Europe are REACH pre-registered. Prior to the start-up of the Rotterdam operation later this year, the K-Flex products will be fully registered under REACH.
