Buckman Laboratories International defends the world against tiny invaders. The global specialty chemicals manufacturer originated as a producer of chemicals that control the growth of microorganisms such as mold and fungi. Today the company's more than 1,000 products are key to aqueous industrial processes used in manufacturing and treating pulp and paper, leather, paint, coatings, plastics, and wood. They include bactericides, chemical intermediates, coagulants, corrosion inhibitors, defoamers, dispersants, flocculants, microbicides, polymers, and scale inhibitors. The family of founder Stanley Buckman owns the company through Bulab Holdings.
