BCD Chemie GmbH will service the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), while Caldic Spécialités will manage the distribution in France.
"Emerald continues to build its infrastructure in the EMEA region in response to demand for more environmentally friendly materials that deliver the performance manufacturers need,” said Hans Dick Terhenne, business director for EMEA. "Both BCD and Caldic Spécialités are the right companies to provide customers with the service they need and to further develop our business in the region.”

Boosting development of new markets

Terhenne continued, "BCD and Caldic Spécialités provide extensive plasticizer and industry knowledge, a broad portfolio of related products and an ambitious team. Their existing technical knowledge of the market, coupled with their large customer base, will support the market introduction of ‘K- Flex’ in key growing market segments, such as sealants, water-based adhesives, vinyl and coatings. We expect to substantially grow the business in existing applications and to boost the development of new markets and applications.”

The products are utilised as plasticizers in adhesives, PVC plastisols and compounds, caulks, sealants and other latex polymer applications, as well as coalescents in paints, coatings, inks and graphic arts. They are known as environmentally friendly specialty plasticizers and coalescents: low-VOC, readily biodegradable and REACH-registered. In addition, the plasticizers and coalescents enhance key performance features, such as film formation, adhesion, processing characteristics and resistance of the end-product to oil, grease and water. This makes them a better value choice when compared to other industry standard plasticizers and coalescents.
