Our biobased solution for polymers
Jungbunzlauer is the largest producer of citric acid and citrate esters worldwide. Product innovation and continuous process improvements in our state-of-the-art plants result in unique high quality products. Jungbunzlauer provides also individual citrate ester solutions to meet special customer requirements. The CITROFOL ® range comprises clear, colourless and odourless liquids that are free of suspended solids or foreign matter. All of our citrate esters have low toxicity, are classified as non volatile organic compounds (non-VOCs) and are biocompostable within a short time without harming the soil. CITROFOL® types offer diverse benefits as they are excellent primary biobased plasticisers and reduce hardness of numerous polymers without influencing mechanical properties.
