Plastigold
 
Description
PLASTIGOLD' A and B are two chemical plasticisers manufactured to the highest quality standards in a modern computer-controlled facility in Kurnool and Rajpura India. Each grade offers excellent plasticizing and flame-retardant properties at attractively low cost. Each is compatible with a wide range of other polymer types and so allows the partial to substantial replacement of so-called 'primary' plasticisers'. Plastigold products provide first-class water resistance and low volatility. They are non-toxic and chemically inert. 'PLASTIGOLD A ' has extremely high plasticity while' PLASTIGOLD B ' has extremely high cell strength.
