BENZOATES -- Benzoates are used as a food preservative and are used in the processing of foods including: bananas, cake, cereal, chocolate, dressings, fats, licorice, margarine, mayonnaise, powdered milk, oils, powdered potatoes, and dry yeast.
Examples of these agents include methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl parabens and sodium benzoate.
This expansion addresses growing market demand for the company's benzoic acid, nonphthalate plasticizers, and benzoate preservatives.
The added purification and finishing capacity will support growing demand for the company's high purity Kalama[R] and Purox[R] brands of benzoic acid flakes, sodium benzoate granules, and liquid benzoic acid, which it provides to the market and utilizes for the production of downstream products, notably K-FLEX[R] nonphthalate plasticizers and coalescents.
Ester-based plasticizers include benzoates, isophthalates, adipates, phthalates, citrates, trimellitates and various glycol esters of aliphatic acids.
