Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) remains one of the world’s most used and most useful synthetic materials. The addition of plasticizers makes PVC more flexible and thereby more viable in many markets. PVC plastisol manufacturers, however, are being challenged to specify plasticizers that meet emerging regulatory and customer demands.
The excellent solvating characteristics of these plasticizers allow for a broader processing window for vinyl plastisols. Benzoflex™ plasticizers bring benefits to plastisols by reducing fusion temperatures and offering lower volatility.
