K-FLEX®: Environmentally-friendly plasticizers that deliver value

K-FLEX® plasticizers optimize your manufacturing processes and the properties of your end-products. They are highly compatible with polar polymers in water-based adhesive systems and they improve the film formation of paints and coatings. In PVC production, the fast-gelling dibenzoates can speed up processes, helping formulators achieve greater efficiency.
