Fine chemicals and API
PKC has specialized in the production of very high purity specialty chemicals and API, see below list.
The two specialty chemicals1,4-Butanediol Diglycidyl Ether and Octyl Decyl Glycidyl Ether are typically used as coupling reagents or cross-coupling reagents for polymers and diagnostics within the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. For such applications, the purity is of absolute importance.
Malathion 99% is used as an API in lice shampoo. Malathion is highly effective, safe and has been used for decades all over the world. Malathion is a prescription drug approved by US FDA and European EMEA for the treatment of head lice infestation. Malathion is both pediculicidal (kills live lice) and partially ovicidal (kills lice eggs). The most important aspect in the use of Malathion for humans, is to secure that the purity meets all requirements stipulated in the European Pharmacopeia and/or the US Pharmacopeia. The reason is, that during the production of technical Malathion, there are also produced bi-products that are very harmful to humans. Therefore, it is dangerous to use Malathion of technical quality (typical 96%) in products for humans. Use only Malathion 99% for humans. PKC has recently built a complete new and fully dedicated production unit for the manufacturing of Malathion 99%. Thus, PKC can deliver Malathion 99% from the newest and most modern production facility in the world.
