Ascend Performance Materials today announced it has fully commissioned production of 40 percent NTA-Na3 (nitrilotriacetic acid trisodium salt) liquid.
Ascend’s NTA-Na3 product offerings will be based in Antwerp and now include FlexaTrac-NTA-100 (NTA-Na3 Powder) and FlexaTrac-NTA-200 (NTA-Na3 Liquid). The products are part of Ascend’s Specialty Chemicals portfolio.
“Ascend has historically been a key supplier to the European industrial and institutional market through its NTA-Na3 powder offering, but this new capability demonstrates our commitment to the larger liquid NTA-Na3 market in Europe,” said Finlay Morrison, vice president of Specialty Chemicals at Ascend Performance Materials.
“The ability to provide both FlexaTrac-NTA powder and liquid options will allow us to fully support our European customers with a complete solution for their formulation needs,” added Ben Vaughn, FlexaTrac-NTA product manager.
Over the past six months, Ascend has been successfully qualifying FlexaTrac-NTA-200 and expects the pace of customer acceptance to accelerate as a result of increased customer demand.
