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.


In the late1960s as Alpha Chemical and Plastics, we launched a series of PVC compounds (ALPHAMED) designed for medical device applications.  These base formulations grew to include literally hundreds of variations, driven by customization for our customers, regulatory compliance and an ever-changing landscape of new applications.  In the 1980s as Gary Chemical, we introduced leading-edge flame retardant PVC compounds (our GW and SMOKEGUARD series) for wire & cable applications that literally changed the landscape of available materials.  Since then we have expanded this portfolio to include non-halogen compounds (MEGOLON), TPE compounds (GARAFLEX) and urethane compounds (GARATHANE) all targeted to meet the demanding and exacting standards that challenge the designers of energy, data and power cables (to name a few).  In the 1980s as Evode Plastics, we entered the marketplace with our TPE compound EVOPRENE designed for a vast and diverse portfolio of applications from auto interior parts to children's toys.  We have rounded out these product offerings with materials designed for beverage packaging (ALPHASEAL), colorants to complement our compounds (GARATONE and MICRAFLO), and most recently stabilizers called VINASTAB desgined around the standards we have come to expect for raw materials. 

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.
