About ALPHAGARY (formerly Mexichem Specialty Compounds)

We specialize in the design, development and manufacture of a wide variety of compounded materials including those based on PVC, TPE, Olefin, and urethane polymer systems. Our portfolio has expanded to include a range of color concentrates and most recently a tailored series of stabilizers for PVC.

We believe our strength lies in the relationships we form with our customers by being forward-thinking, adaptable, agile and approachable.  Our goal is always to bring a solution to the table and many times that is in the form of a customization that fits with the development goals and/or manufacturing techniques of our customers.  We value the energy and dedication of our team, many who have been with our organization for well over a decade. We encourage you to contact us to see how we can bring value to your company today and in preparation for the future.
