Securing your supply for the future

While stocks last, we will continue to supply Shapal™-M soft, or on demand the new Shapal™ Hi-M soft. If your current application uses Shapal™-M, you may want to purchase some of the new grade to approve it for your application, and in the meantime purchase enough stocks of the current grade to maintain your production using the approved grade.

All of our standard catalog items are clearly marked as either Shapal™-M soft or Shapal™ Hi-M soft.
