Custom Manufacturing for Phosgenations

VanDeMark products are manufactured by phosgenating different alcohols, carboxylic acids, and amines. The application of these intermediates covers a wide range of custom capabilities to serve the chemical industry. We can provide services on both a plant and lab scale with both liquid and solids handling capabilities.

Framochem’s chemical manufacturing activity is based on phosgene production at a facility comprised of six (6) separate multi-purpose production lines. The different equipment volumes of the lines enable us to be flexible in terms of product quantities, adding new material to existing product families, and in meeting unique and specialized needs of our customers.
