High strength bonding of PVC to many substrates, now available in non-phthalate formulations
Vulcabond™ liquid bonding agents are used in PVC plastisols when coating onto polyester and nylon fibers to make PVC coated fabrics for the construction and transportation industries. Cotton fibers, which have a rough open surface, make it easy for plastisol to penetrate and give a good mechanical adhesion. In contrast, polyester and nylon fibers are made up of bundles of smooth filaments, often in a close weave construction, which make mechanical adhesion without the use of a bonding agent ineffective – this is where Vulcabond™ products excel.
For optimal performance, the Vulcabond™ products are added at the final stage of plastisol mixing. These products are manufactured in both non-phthalate and phthalate plasticizers according to individual requirements. The Valtris product range contains some of the most reliable and reputable products in the industry evolving from several decades of development and production experience.
- Bonding agents are commonly combined with Biocides and Mixed Metal Stabilizers in PVC Coated Fabrics for high performance and weather resistance
- Used in PVC plastisols when coating onto polyester and nylon fibers to make PVC coated fabrics for the construction and transportation industries
- Products can be carried in both phthalate and non-phthalate plasticizers according to individual requirements
- High bond strength and good compatibility make Valtris a market leader in these products

Lankromark™, Therm-Chek®, Akcrostab™ Lastab, Interlite™ and Interstab™ Mixed Metal Heat Stabilizers
The Valtris range of Mixed Metal Heat Stabilizers are highly efficient products that provide stability to PVC formulations
Santicizer® Phosphate Ester Flame Retardant Plasticizers
Santicizer® Phosphate Esters flame retardant plasticizers are non-halogenated and perform with the same plasticizing capabilities of the other Santicizer® plasticizers. Formulating these products into a polymer will retard flame propagation and suppress smoke generation.
Santicizer® Fast Fusing Plasticizers
Santicizer® Plasticizers offer all the benefits of high solvating plasticizers including compatibility in multiple polymer systems including PVC, Polysulfide, Polyurethane and Silane Modified Polymers. Because of their high efficiency, less energy is required to fuse PVC formulations.
Plas-Chek and Lankroflex Epoxy Costabilizers and Secondary Plasticizers
Lankroflex™ & Plas-Chek® epoxidized soybean oil (ESO), Lankroflex™ epoxidized linseed oil (ELO) and Lankroflex™ ED6 are secondary heat stabilizers that are used in a wide variety of flexible PVC formulations.
Micro-Chek and Intercide Antimicrobials
Micro-Chek® and Intercide™ heavy-metal free antimicrobial agents are thermally stable and cost-effective for use in plastic articles. They are recommended as preservatives for both indoor and outdoor applications and are suitable for use in applications such as textile coatings, flooring, roofing, artificial leather, pool liners and tarpaulins. Available in both liquid and solid forms.
Lankromark™ LE – Liquid Phosphites
Valtris is a key producer of liquid phosphites which are used in applications ranging from PVC stabilization and polyurethanes to block copolymer and coating resin color protection.
Synpro® Metallic Stearates & Stearate Dispersions
We offer a broad portfolio of metallic stearates, derived from renewable feedstocks, including calcium, zinc, aluminum, barium, lithium, and magnesium. Selection of metal stearate type is driven by processing conditions, application requirements, interaction with other additives, and regulatory requirements. Valtris offers compliance with NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) and PPI (Plastics Pipe Institute), as well as several products that meet required certification for use in regulated applications like personal care and pharmaceuticals – EP (European Pharmacopoeia), JP (Japanese Pharmacopoeia), and NF/USP (National Formulary/US Pharmacopoeia), and FDA.
