Markets We Serve
At ACS, we focus on serving a variety of markets that value or require advanced bio-based raw materials, chemicals and intermediates. Our technology offers these industries a high, bio-based content product that is generally less toxic and hazardous than traditional petroleum-based chemicals while providing the performance and quality standards required. Our technical and manufacturing experts can also provide custom solutions to help you achieve your market needs.
Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, Elastomers
We provide a variety of materials for water base, solvent base and solvent-free coating markets. Our technology incudes bio-based zero and ultra-low VOC coalescing agents, plasticizers, epoxy diluents, 100% solids solvents and degreasers. It also includes both reactive and non-reactive chemistries and find use utility in a wide variety of applications including industrial, architectural, thermoset and powder coatings.
Plastics & Polymers
We manufacture bio-based plasticizers, diluents, acid scavengers, stabilizers, Tg modifiers, zero VOC coalescing agents and secondary plasticizers to high performance coatings, specialty PVC, plastisol, emulsion, polymer and plastic markets.
Flexible, PVC medical devices routinely require a high degree of quality, flexibility, low toxicity, acid scavenging and high functionality applications. We offer products that deliver these requirements in an FDA-approved, non-toxic, bio-based product platform.
Our raw materials are used in a variety of building supplies including asphalt additives, epoxy flooring and composite modifiers and diluents, concrete sealers, barrier coatings, elastomers, caulks and sealants.
Our coalescent technology provides water base inks based on acrylic, PUD and hybrid technology. It's a zero VOC coalescing agent that improves extreme humidity coalescence, lowers VOCs, reduces health and safety concerns and improves water resistance.
In screen printing and plastisol inks, our products are used as high efficiency plasticizers and stabilizers.
Our products are used in a variety of applications including seed coatings. The bio-based building blocks of our products offer environmentally friendly technology and are biodegradable.
