Terephthalic acid dibutyl ester. Acts as a plasticizer and is phthalate-free. Provides lower plastisol viscosity, excellent low temperature flexibility, and fusion rates similar to typical high solvating plasticizers in vinyl formulations.
Phthalate-free blend of esters. Acts as a plasticizer. Exhibits better Shore A hardness, viscosity, tensile strength & water uptake as compared to traditional phthalate plasticizers and other non-phthalate solutions such as dibenzoate plasticizers.
It acts as a plasticizer. This value-added formulation solution has excellent compatibility in PVAc and VAE systems. Used for water-based adhesives.
Oxydiethylene dibenzoate. Acts as plasticizer. It is an excellent solvator for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and also shows compatibility with it.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a high solvating plasticizer designed for resilient vinyl flooring. May be used in foam, clear or wear layers. Incorporation into the wear or clear layers of a construct imparts very good stain and UV resistance.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a high solvating plasticizer designed for resilient vinyl flooring. May be used in foam, clear or wear layers.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a plasticizer. Is specifically designed for vinyl plastisol applications. It is an excellent alternative to high solvating phthalate plasticizers.
Plasticizer for latex caulks. Designed to pass the stringent performance requirements outlined in ASTM C-920 and ASTM C-834 as well as in non-specification caulks.
Specialty benzoate plasticizer. Imparts very good stain resistance, exhibits high resin solvation at elevated temperatures and possesses good rheological properties for plastisol and organosol applications.
Plasticizer with an excellent cost to performance ratio in vinyl acetate ethylene copolymers and vinyl acetate homopolymers.
Triacetin. Acts as a plasticizer for cellulosic resins. Is compatible in all proportions with cellulose acetate, nitrocellulose and ethyl cellulose.
Non-phthalate, general purpose plasticizer for PVC. Possesses performance equal or better than most ortho-phthalate plasticizers. Offers good performance properties, excellent low temperature flexibility, resistance to extraction by soapy water and excellent non-migration properties.
Benzoate non-phthlate plasticizer. Is specifically formulated for use in single pack and 2K polysulfide sealants. When properly formulated, this product can be used to replace the plasticizers currently utilized in the A-side of 2K-formulations.
Benzoate ester plasticizer. Provides a unique combination of high performance, broad food contact approvals, and reduced EU labeling requirements. Used in latex adhesives.
High solvating benzoate ester plasticizer.
Versatile benzoate ester plasticizer. Provides exceptional utility in polyvinyl acetate adhesives.
High solvating, non-phthalate plasticizer. Is compatible with a wide range of synthetic resinous materials. Imparts a softening as well as fexibilizing effect to these resins.
White flake solid plasticizer with a melt point of 118°C which can offer significant performance advantages in a variety of hot melt adhesive applications.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a high solvating plasticizer primarily known for its exceptional performance in polyvinyl acetate and water-based adhesive systems.
Medium-to-high molecular weight polymeric based on a blend of adipic and phthalic acid. Possesses excellent extraction resistance and weatherability which make it well suited for exterior graphics.
