OUR PRODUCTS


DESCRIPTION

Our key market is the rubber industry where we offer a full range of products from our principal DOG.  We also supply silanes to the coatings industry.  Most polymers (a category that includes all plastics and rubbers), are organic, synthetic or semi-synthetic compounds.

Organic compounds may be classified in a variety of ways.  One major distinction is between natural and synthetic compounds.

Natural compounds

Natural compounds refer to those that are produced by plants or animals.  Many of these are still extracted from natural sources because they would be more expensive to produce artificially. Examples include most sugars, some alkaloids and terpenoids, certain nutrients such as vitamin B12, and in general, those natural products with large or stereoisometrically complicated molecules present in reasonable concentrations in living organisms.

Further compounds of prime importance in biochemistry are antigens, carbohydrates, enzymes, hormones, lipids and fatty acids, neurotransmitters, nucleic acids, proteins, peptides and amino acids, lectins, vitamins, and fats and oils.

Synthetic compounds

Compounds that are prepared by reaction of other compounds are known as “synthetic”.  They may be compounds that are already found in plants or animals or those that do not occur naturally.
