According to the reference, extraction and volatilization properties can be adjusted by adding another plasticiser, for example the less expensive epoxidized soybean oil ESO.

DINCH was the most frequently found plasticiser in two European surveys of plasticisers in toys and childcare articles. 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.

According to Krauskopf and Godwinit’s preferred use is in PVC flooring products, owing to its strong solvating strength, and it reportedly controls plasticiser bleeding into asphalt adhesives. ATBC consists of citrate with three ester bonded butyl groups and one acetyl group bonded to the fourth available oxygen atom, see the structure below.

DEHP has substitution factor 1 per definition, while plasticisers needing lower concentration more effective have lower values, and plasticisers needing higher concentrations have higher effectiveness value. In this section, the mixed product is described. The table also indicates the level of market experience in each application area according to Genovique ; interpreted from qualitative text by the report authors.

DEGD is the esterification product of two benzoate groups with diethylene glycol, see structural formula below. It is, however, too extractable to be useful in some of the applications in the medical area where contact with lipids is important. In practice, terephthalates are more commonly used in the USA than elsewhere. Conclusions The producer, Genovique, has indicated significant market experience in several of the traditional DBP and BBP specialty plasticiser applications and certain DEHP applications, notably in the non-polymer adhesives, sealants, etc.

Similar to DEHP, slightly higher permanence on some parameters, slightly lower on others, see above Eastman, c.

Benzoflex Import Data and Price to India –

It is marketed by Lanxess and Eastman under the name Triacetin. The data available for this study does not allow clear-cut conclusions as regards DINA’s suitability as alternative to DEHP, but DINA could perhaps be worth investigating in future technical explorations for alternatives.


Front page Contents Previous Next Top. BBP is mentioned as a critical component in seals for insulating double glaz-ing BBP Information Centre,but it has not been specifically investigated whether DGD or other benzoates can substitute for BBP for this particular application.

Instead DINA was chosen for further study. The test results show that COMGHA meets all requirements in the extrusion, calendaring and injection moulding applications where it has been evaluated. More blending may be needed with some of the non-phthalate alternatives to achieve general plasticiser characteristics. Producer’s description extracts The producer Lanxess presents ASE as having the following characteristics Lanxess, b: According to Krauskopf and Godwinbenzoates are generally strong solvates due to the high aromaticity, as are lower molecular weight phthalates such as BBP.

Thermoplastics and polar rubbers, coatings and printing inks, dispersions, adhesives, cosmetics e. This makes it a viable candidate for applications that demand low volatility.

It is a useful component of plastisols formulated to give hard end products since it confers little viscosity at low levels of addition. Sales prices in were somewhat higher than DEHP.

Wilson states the most commercially important benzoate as DGD, which is broadly competitive with BBP, had the advantage of somewhat lower volatility.

There may be other producers outside the EU. The higher extractability in aqueous solutions and the higher volatility may reduce the performance of ATBC as a plasticiser in PVC, and could perhaps limit its use for certain applications.

Extractability in medical appliances with lipid fat contact not found optimal, but losses to oil is found similar to DEHP. Some of the substances, for which specific information on market experience has not been supplied e. The products Soft-n-safe and Benzoflex described in this report are examples of such mixed plasticiser products. These blends could be used in many cases as one-to-one replacements for DINP so that major changes to designs and tooling were not necessary.

Plastisol viscosities are lower than for DEHP. The research would however not have to bfnzoflex from scratch, as many relevant henzoflex have been investigated for plasticiser characteristics in early research. Sealants polysulfide based, polyurethane foam sealants, acrylic based; e. Under other circumstances, driven by other priorities, the experience with so far less favoured plasticisers would inevitably increase.


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. A Danish study Nilsson et al.

It has good compatibility with PVC, and it is compatible with all common primary and secondary plasticisers. BBPbenzoates, etc.

DINA is a nearly colourless, clear and practically anhydrous liquid 22088 a hardly noticeable odour. Similarly, the extractability in medical appliances with lipid fat contact may perhaps limit its use for certain medical applications. Front page Contents Previous Next Identification and assessment of alternatives to selected phthalates 5 Technical and economical assessment of alternative plasticisers 5.

The technical description in this report of ten selected alternatives to DEHP, DBP and BBP is based on the producers’ assessments of relevant application fields and experience on the market, as well as the evidence of already established practises, especially in the toys, foodstuffs and medical product fields, but also for other end-uses.

As shown, here TXIB has higher hardness lower efficiency than the phthalates, high volatility yet lower than DBP and much higher extractability in water. COMGHA is an efficient, one-to-one replacement for most conventional plasticisers, such as phthalates. For instance ATBC would not take decoration, it had high migration into adjacent materials leading to swelling and splitting, and there was a need for tooling changes. In the mid s this substitution had not yet happened in Europe, partly due to higher benzoate prices in Europe, 2808 due to less regulatory health and environment pressure at that time.

Producer’s description extracts DGD is a high solvating plasticizer that has been used for many years in a wide variety of applications.
