Case Studies from Eastman non phthalate plasticizers

Switch to a high performance non-phthalate solution for polysulfide sealants

Looking for a non-phthalate option for your polysulfide sealant?
Eastman VersaBond™ plasticizer is a highly efficient non-phthalate solution for polysulfide sealants.
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
