“The agreement between Struktol and Emerald will provide our customers with a great combination since Struktol thioester products are synergistic secondary antioxidants when used with Emerald phenolic AO’s,” said Mike Fulmer, product manager, plastic additives, at Stow, Ohio-based Struktol. “Together, we can provide our customers with the highest level of technical know-how, service and unique solution development.”
Struktol will be focused on expanding Emerald’s antioxidant penetration into the polyolefin market, Fulmer continued. In the primary areas of application will be the thermoplastic compounding and masterbatch markets, however, both companies will focus on product development for the overall thermoplastic processing industry.
The companies are also working together on new product development activities focusing on novel antioxidant chemistries and technologies.
“By working closely with Struktol, we can provide customers with a continued supply of superior products manufactured in the United States and develop innovative solutions that they would be unable to get from any other single company,” added Pete Getzinger, commercial director for the Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio-based Emerald.
