Arropol Chemicals, Inc.™ was established in 2018 and is a sister company of ArrowStar, LLC™, a producer and supplier of specialty chemicals to the fiber, carpet and metal working industries.
Our technology focus at Arropol is the production of urethane and epoxy systems – specifically, polyols and polyol blends for polyurethane; and curing agents, hardening agents and blends for epoxy coatings. Most of these products are produced from the deconstruction of post-consumer and post-industrial polyester carpet through a reclamation process developed by Arropol™. On October 5, 2018, Arropol™ received EPA approval for its polyol process.
Our market focus at Arropol™ is in the areas of coatings, flexible foam and semi-rigid foam uses in a variety of industries or as a component in a finished product.
This process yields significant environmental advantages, such as:
- Avoidance of post-consumer and post-industrial carpet in landfills
- Reduction of the overall industry carbon footprint for polyester carpet
- Reduction of virgin chemicals to produce polyurethane and epoxy coatings
Arropol™ is based in Dalton, Georgia and was founded by ownership with over 50 years of chemical company experience and over 150 years of collective technical expertise in select specialty areas.
