Thermoplastics and polar rubbers, coatings and printing inks, dispersions, adhesives, cosmetics e. The potential for attaining reduced prices with increased production volume has not been investigated by the research made for this study.

As shown, performance parameters are quite close to DEHP’s, except for a higher resistance to kerosene jet-fuel, lipophilic solvent. It also improves adhesion in acrylic latex caulks Genovique, b.

In water DINA is soluble only in very small amounts. GTA is useful for imparting plasticity and flow to laminating resins, particularly at low temperatures, and is also used as a plasticizer for vinylidene polymers and copolymers. ATBC has mostly been used in products benzofpex for sensitive purposes such as medical products food contact products and children’s toys.

Efficiency indicator, also called substitution factor, indicating the concentration of behzoflex in PVC needed, compared to DEHP, to achieve a specified flexibility according to a well defined method. The water content must be kept constant to achieve constant solidification.

Benzoflex Import Data and Price to India –

DINCH is the hydrogenated parallel to DINP, with the difference that the ring structure is cyclohexane a cyclic alkyl hydrocarbon instead of a benzene ring an aromate. It is marketed by Lanxess and Eastman under the name Triacetin. It is also used in inks, hair sprays and aerosol bandages ECPI, This of course sets limits to the minimum prices attainable even in a mature market, and some of the alternative plasticisers described may likely remain at higher price levels.


In plastisols, DEHT results in low initial viscosity and good keeping viscosity. For such uses, the larger molecule n-butyryltri-n-hexyl Citrate is recommended by Vertellus.

Note that Lanxess has indicated significant market experience for adhesives, coatings and inks and examples of full scale experience in a number of other non-polymer traditional DBP and BBP uses.

There are several other producers world wide. Producer’s description extracts DGD is a high solvating plasticizer that has been used for many years in a wide variety of applications. High resistance to extraction by saponification extraction with soap waterLanxess,b. High saponification resistance, especially compared to DEHP, due to ASE’s chemical structure; this is especially beneficial for articles which come into contact with water and alkalis.

Eastman | Benzoflex – Plasticizer

In this section, the mixed product is described. Instead DINA was chosen for further study. The higher polarity results in faster gelling speed than can be achieved with other plasticisers at similar molecular weight and volatility.

Thanks to its toxicological profile, its low migration rate, and especially the low solubility in water and ethanol, this additive is developed for food contact applications such as cling film, hoses, sealants and cap closures, crown corks, artificial wine corks, gaskets and gloves.

So far, the dominance for many years of DEHP and other ortho-phthalate plasticisers may have naturally limited the motivation to get more full scale experience with other plasticiser types.


Note that Eastman has indicated significant market experience for all traditional DEHP uses, except car undercoating and production of ceramics.

New research initiated needs yet to prove potential for increased benzofles at lower prices. Note that Vertellus has indicated significant market experience for toys, medical articles, and certain non-polymer applications benzof,ex for both DEHP, DBP and BBP, indicating both general plasticiser characteristics and coverage of some of the special performance characteristics of DBP and BBP.

The producer found good performance on key technical parameters indicating a potential for substituting for DEHP and perhaps for DBP and BBP in some traditional uses og these substances. It provides many improvements over DBP in cellulose nitrate films, including lower volatility, better resistance to benzpflex, and better adhesion to metals. However it suffered from a variety of technical drawbacks when compared with DINP.

The producer has indicated significant market experience in several of the traditional DBP and BBP specialty plasticiser applications and venzoflex DEHP applications, notably in the non-polymer adhesives, sealants, etc. The expenses associated with such additional research and implementation has not been assessed in this study.
