Selecting Plasticizers for Adhesives and Sealants Formulation

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Apr 30, 2015

Limit time spent on plasticizers selection (phtalates, non-phtalates, biobased) by adopting a structured screening approach.

Ed Petrie will map current chemistries vs. their best application fit and share a systematic testing procedure to choose plasticizer depending on your end-use requirements (packaging, lamination, automotive...)

Why should you view this course?

There are over 38 chemical families of plasticizers which compete one with another on the basis of cost, performance, and regulatory approvals... Do you have to test all the alternatives to find the one that will optimally suit your formulations and end-use requirements at the lowest cost? Save your precious time with this course reviewing plasticizers available on the market and the tests you have to run depending on YOUR needs!


  1. Select the right plasticizer among the various materials available (phtalate, non-phtalate, biobased) with this structured overview of the market
  2. Learn about testing procedures to perform (compatibility, migration...) depending on your end-use requirements (packaging, lamination, automotive...)
  3. Implement strategies that will reduce cost without lowering performance (melt properties, wetting, adhesion, shear, peel, tack, durability)
Selection Plasticizers Adhesive Sealant packaging Phtalate
