Docs & Support
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.
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.
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.
Admex™ 770
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.
