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.
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 plasticizer. Is specifically designed for vinyl plastisol applications. It is an excellent alternative to high solvating phthalate plasticizers.
Plasticizer with an excellent cost to performance ratio in vinyl acetate ethylene copolymers and vinyl acetate homopolymers.
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.
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.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a high solvating plasticizer primarily known for its exceptional performance in polyvinyl acetate and water-based adhesive systems.
