Perstorp, Purac to develop caprolactone lactide co-polymers

PERSTORP, SWEDEN/DIEMEN, THE NETHERLANDS: Perstorp and Purac, a leading player in natural food preservation and bio-based chemicals, announced a partnership for developing caprolactone lactide co-polymers for the plastic, coatings and adhesive markets. Combining the complementary strengths of Perstorp in specialty products for coatings and plastics with Purac in renewable lactic acid based chemicals has already resulted in partly renewable caprolactone lactide co-products.

“We are very excited about this strategic partnership with Purac, which has a strong position in renewable products for the plastics industry. With Perstorp’s strong position in specialty products for coatings and plastics, our respective skills and experience comprise a good foundation for a successful venture and means that we are expanding our Capa range with a partly renewable product,” said Hakan Bjornberg, Market Development Director, Perstorp.
