Plastic / Plasticizers

Today, over 85 percent of all plasticisers consumed in Europe are used in flexible PVC applications. They give PVC the flexibility and elasticity needed for many different applications. Plasticisers are major functional substances that transform the physical properties of PVC and other polymers creating a whole new world of flexible and durable applications.
Dioctyl adipate
Is a plasticizer obtained by esterification of 2-ethylhexanol and Adipic Acid. Both homopolymer and copolymer are compatible with vinyl resins. DOA is especially used in colored PVC resins and where low temperature properties are desired. Plasticizer for PVC, surface coatings, and rubber. Be used for flexible PVC films for food contact (cling film).
Dioctyl Terephthalate
Ester of terephthalic acid and 2-ethylhexanol. 
DOTP (also abreviated DEHT), is a PVC plasticizer that is considered safer than low-chain and ortho-phthalate plasticizers due to its excellent toxicological profile. 
In the European plasticizer market, Dioctyl terephthalate is one of the growing phtalate- free plasticizers because of European environmental restrictions. 
DOTP, is extensively used in applications like extrusion, calendaring, injection molding, rotational molding, dip molding, slush molding, coating and some ink applications.
Dipropyl Heptylphthalate
The ultimate weather resistant & durable C10 plasticizer Higher extrusion rates and a lower cost per cubic meter Superior UV resistance for an extended outdoor life Low volatility for greater durability Low water absorption for added weather resistance Low migration for a stable longer life performance Increases extrusion rates by 2-3% compared to C8-9 plasticizers. Anti-fogging for a clean, safe and crisp appearance DPHP is used in applications of Automotive Interior Trim, wire&cable, roofing membranes, tarpaulins, sealants, artificial leather.
