We’ll Explore and Develop Products Where Others May Shy Away

If you need help with an underperforming product, or manufacturing a unique product for your brand, we have the chemical expertise to help.


product development

We are happy to product match based on a small sample (approximately 500ml) and if available, a product Safety Data Sheet.

The process of developing a new product involves discussing a brief in depth with technical team. However, if you already know what you are looking for, or would like us to match and tweak a product already on the market, or product you already purchase we can de-formulate and develop a product that is perfect for your requirements. Our R&D chemists are able to advise the benefits and drawbacks of a product and discuss the potential of offering an improvement if applicable.

A-Chem and HL Plastics partnered up to develop “Soda Cleanser Excel” and “Citra Solv M” – cleaners specifically required for their processes.


A-Chem and HL Plastics recently partnered up to develop exceptional chemical solutions. These were specifically formulated for their processes, allowing their productions to run smoothly and efficiently.

Here’s what they had to say about their professional cleaning supplies…

“We use Citra Solv M when cleaning and lubricating our intricate, expensive extrusion tools to break down the wax & grime which in turn contributes towards the high standard that our tools are kept in.”

“Soda Cleanser Excel is a key product used in our Tool Maintenance Department. It is used to remove residues from tooling involved in the production of our lead-free PVCu products. Soda Cleanser Excel speeds up the cleaning of our tools whilst maintaining a high standard of finish.”

Ross Hartshorn – Toolroom Foreman

A-Chem very much looks forward to continuing being a trusted supplier and supporting HL Plastics chemical requirements as they continue to innovate within their marketplace.
