Akcros Chemicals doubles PVC powder stabilizer capacity

July 20th, 2015 / By: / Industry News

PVC mixed-metal-stabilizer technology developer Akcros Chemicals Inc. has completed a powder stabilizer manufacturing expansion at its New Brunswick, N.J., manufacturing site, effectively doubling the existing capacity. Powder stabilizers and boosters are used to prevent PVC degradation during the manufacturing process of such flexible vinyl products as flooring, roofing, tenting and wall coverings. They also aid in the reduction of volatile organic compounds and are nonyl phenol, 2EHA (2-ethyl hexanoic acid) and phenol free.

The plant expansion will allow Akcros to meet customers’ increased demand for general purpose and FDA approved powder stabilizers as well as high performance powder boosters.
