ALZO INTERNATIONAL MOURNS THE LOSS OF ITS LEADER

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Albert Zofchak, Founder and President of Alzo International Inc. His love and passion for science led to a long and successful 60-year career as a chemist and to establishing Alzo International in 1974. He was the inventor of many patents, and his family-owned company remains a leader in the development of specialty chemical ingredients used in cosmetic and personal care products by major marketers around the world.

Al was well known and respected by his industry peers, colleagues, and customers many of whom had come to be his friends. His passing is a tremendous loss especially for his family and employees and we will continue to work towards achieving his goal for long-term growth and prosperity for Alzo International.

His name and legacy will carry on with every product made and sold under the brand, “AL ZO”.

Polymeric Film Forming Systems

NuPLastic Film Systems are multifunctional transfer and water resistant films based on the combination of NuLastic Silicone Elastomers and Polyderm Polyurethane water based dispersions.The synergy of the thermoplastic resins and silicone elastomers yield emollient and flexible films, as well as, long wear and the delivery of water soluble and water insoluble actives.

NuPlastic Film Systems

A new film forming technology based upon silicone thermoset elastomers (TSE) combined with water based thermoplastic resins (TPE). The synergy of the polymers yield durable and flexible films as well as long wear, water and transfer resistance, and delivery of high levels of oil or water soluble actives. The films set almost immediately with virtually no dry time and can be customized to provide matte or shiny finishes.
