Helping industries develop and deliver through practical advances.

Chlorinated organics are remarkably stable, non-corrosive to most metals and generally non-flammable. All with low rates of evaporation and vapor pressures. This gives them a range of manufacturing applications including metal and electronics cleaning, paint stripping, flexible foam manufacturing and catalyst regeneration. Our team is committed to staying on the forefront of these essential chemicals so that when the needs of industry or the environment evolve, our products will advance with them.

Ethylene dichloride (EDC) is primarily used in the production of vinyl chloride monomer, the precursor to polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It is produced by reacting chlorine or anhydrous hydrochloric acid with ethylene. Other applications include use as a solvent, degreaser, paint remover and chemical intermediate for other organic compounds.
