Our Story

Alphagary, an Orbia business, is pioneering innovation solutions to advance life around the world. Orbia’s Polymer Solutions business Alphagary is a global leader in the design and manufacture of specialty polymer compounds and additives for polyvinyl chloride compounds including stabilizers, plasticizers and colorants.

Alphagary manufactures specialty compounds, formulated from a variety of polymers, that are purpose-designed for a wide range of applications.   Alphagary also formulates stabilizers, plasticizers and colorants designed for use in vinyl compounds.

Our strength starts with our talented team who work together across the globe to bring solutions to our customers.  We’ve earned lasting relationships with customers because we are agile and approachable and enjoy working together to answer new and evolving performance criteria.  We welcome the opportunity to work with new customers as we stretch and expand our innovation capabilities, often tailoring a compound to the performance requirements needed.   And we depend on our supply partners who provide the solid foundation to support our innovative initiatives as well as ongoing raw material requirements. 

Over the years, our portfolio has expanded tremendously through innovation and through acquisition.  We work with PVC, TPE, Olefin, PU, and various other base polymers to create durable and functional materials.   Customers benefit from our diverse and proven off-the-shelf compounds as well as our ability to custom formulate.  Our adaptability provides value and quickly resolves pain-points that allows our customers to move forward with their own innovation strategies. 

Many of our materials have been formulated to meet market-specific application criteria.  Often, we are called upon to provide information to assist third-party approval processes.  Our experienced team is able to answer regulatory questions, provide internal and external testing certifications and data that help determine the compound’s ability to meet stringent performance criteria. 


Alphagary is dedicated to the safety of our employees.  Our goal is that all employees go home in the same condition that they came to work.  Each month, we highlight a life-saving rule that is meant to remind us of serious hazards.  Additionally, employees undergo site-specific and job-specific safety training.  Training guidelines are documented in site certifications to ensure consistency and repeatability.  Certifications such as ISO 9001 govern our quality practices to ensure material performance repeatability and consistency that our customers depend upon. 

We encourage you to contact us!  Put our team to work on your project and experience first-hand the value we bring today and in preparation for the future.
