Switch to Eastman non-phthalate plasticizers

An alternative to traditional plasticizers

Plasticizers are used in everyday products: they are used in various applications, from automotive to children’s toys to adhesives and sealants.

Indeed, plasticizers bring more flexibility and enable better processing and handling of formulations for more high-performing end products. However, regulatory restrictions and changing consumer preferences are increasingly leading plasticizer users to remove phthalates from formulations. The outstanding processing and performance characteristics and typical properties of Eastman non-phthalate plasticizers make them an excellent choice when you switch from a traditional plasticizer.

If you are looking for non-phthalate alternatives, Eastman has a broad selection of non-phthalate plasticizers suited for many adhesives, caulks, and sealants.

REACH registered and backed by some U.S. FDA food contact clearances

Safely used in a variety of markets for more than 40 years, Eastman non-phthalate plasticizers have been reviewed by regulatory agencies around the globe. Not only do Eastman non-phthalate plasticizers offer the registration and clearance you need, they’re also suitable for most adhesive systems, providing improved wet tack, set times, and open times. Additionally, they are compatible with a wide variety of polymer systems and are delivered with reliable supply.

As a near drop-in replacement for traditional phthalate-based plasticizers, VersaBond:

  • Is a non-phthalate plasticizer which is unaffected by any current or known upcoming phthalate restrictions likely under REACH
  • Outperforms other phthalate and non-phthalate options thanks to optimized Shore A hardness and better tensile properties to glass
  • Requires little to no reformulation, which can save months in development, approval and changeover time
