Elasco, Inc. Develops Proprietary Sustainable Soy-Based PolyurethanesBusiness Wire -- GARDEN GROVE, CA -- June 16, 2010 -- Deltron, Inc. (OTCBB:DTRO) is pleased to announce that wholly owned manufacturing subsidiary Elasco, Inc. has developed proprietary polyurethane formulations made from renewable resources that significantly reduce the carbon footprint of manufactured products. Deltron’s Elasco offers polyurethane produced from renewable soybean oil as an alternative to conventional polyurethane made from petroleum-based chemicals. The company is finding a growing market for its green formulations.
Leveraging 31 years of experience in polyurethane formulation for diverse industries, Elasco has developed sustainable, energy efficient polyurethane formulations made with renewable plant-based raw materials. The company combines polyols produced from pressed soybeans with isocyanate to create new polymers that meet customer specifications. Traditional polyurethane products are made entirely from petrochemicals. Soy-based polyol resins used in Elasco’s polyurethanes reduce related carbon emissions from the manufacturing process by 36%, require less energy to produce, use sustainable materials, are free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and reduce demand for and reliance on non-renewable petroleum reserves.
Henry Larrucea, Deltron CEO, commented: “Deltron is proud to be able to offer our customers environmentally friendly alternatives that have all the performance, versatility and durability of hydrocarbon-based polyurethane with significantly less environmental impact. Our team has been developing and selling polyurethane products containing soy-based polyols for two years. We are seeing increased demand for ‘greener’ products from customers, particularly those in the recreational products industry, and believe Deltron will be able to significantly expand sales in this arena.”
