Plasticizers

Plasticizers are added to adhesives to improve their flexibility and workability and improve the flow. Plasticizers also reduce the elastic modulus, stiffness and hardness. They decrease the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the polymer, resultantly improving the processability and extrudability of adhesives and sealants. With regards to the primary resin type, a variety of plasticizers like paraffinic oils, phthalate esters, non phthalates and polybutenes can be used in adhesives and sealants.
