Purac, Perstorp in Partnership to Develop Caprolactone Lactide Co-product

14.03.2013 -

Purac, a player in natural food preservation and biobased building blocks & chemicals, and Perstorp, a specialty chemicals company today announced a research and business development partnership for caprolactone lactide co-product, for amongst others coatings and adhesive markets.

Possible uses for these new caprolactone lactide co-products are, amongst others, as polyols for coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers and as hot-melt adhesives. Its unique composition makes it possible to control both the melting point and mechanical properties and reduce the crystallinity of polyols.

The new caprolactone lactide co-products will be launched to the market by Perstorp during 2013 and presented both at K-fair and at the European Coatings Show.
