Georgia Gulf, Segetis to collaborate on bio-based polyvinyl chloride in US

May 23/2012

(hydrocarbonprocessing) -- Georgia Gulf said Monday that it has agreed to collaborate with Segetis to offer a new flexible vinyl compound based on Javelin technology bio-plasticizers from Segetis.

This is an exciting collaboration that combines Segetis' proprietary technology with Georgia Gulf's vinyl compounding expertise to customize formulations that deliver unique performance profiles,  said William H. Doherty, vice president of vinyl compounds at Georgia Gulf.

This is the second collaboration to develop bio-based flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compounds announced in 2012 by Georgia Gulf, the US-based company noted.

The Segetis bio-based plasticizers are built on a new platform of cellulosic-based levulinic ketals, which Segetis has branded as Javelin technology.

The plasticizers are compatible across a wide-loading range, are highly efficient with excellent permanence and bring faster processing speeds and elevated temperature performance, the companies say.

Coupled with their ability to be 100% bio-based, all Segetis plasticizers bring low vapor pressure and low extractables, and they are broadly miscible with many resin families.
