With Eastman VersaMax Plus, a non-phthalate plasticizer, plastisol manufacturers now have a choice that improves performance
Eastman VersaMax™ Plus Plasticizer is a non-phthalate, general purpose solution. It is compatible with flexible PVC and plastisols.
Benzoflex™ 131 by Eastman Chemical Company is an isodecyl benzoate. Acts as a plasticizer. It is a water-insoluble clear, low viscous organic liquid with mild ester odor.
High solvating, non-phthalate plasticizer. Provides lower plastisol viscosity, excellent low temperature flexibility, and fusion rates similar to typical high solvating plasticizers in vinyl formulations. Recommended for PVC plastisols, automotive and flooring or interior surfaces.
Acts as a plasticizer. Is also compatible with, and an excellent solvator for, polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Flexible vinyl formulations based on this plasticizer can be processed quicker and/or at lower temperatures than vinyls based on a di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate.
Product
Admex™ 761
Medium-high molecular weight, polymeric adipate. Acts as a plasticizer. Is characterized by a mild ester odor and light color. Possesses very good extraction resistance to organic materials.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a plasticizer specifically designed for vinyl plastisol applications. Used as a very good alternative to high solvating phthalate plasticizers.
Benzoate ester. Acts as a high solvating plasticizer designed for high performance PVC flooring applications. Displays very good wet tack, set times and open times.
Alkyl benzoate ester. Acts as a low viscosity, high solvating plasticizer for plastisols applications. Exhibits low odor and very good compatibility with PVC. Can also be used in other applications requiring a low viscosity.
General purpose plasticizer for flexible PVC. Provides very good low temperature flexibility. Exhibits very good resistance to extraction. Offers good non-migration properties.
Eastman™ 168 is a non-phthalate plasticizer. Offers good performance properties. Provides low temperature flexibility and resistance to extraction by soapy water. Exhibits very good non-migration properties.
Versatile benzoate ester plasticizer. Possesses very good solvating characteristics in plastisol and dry blended vinyl formulations.
High solvating, non-phthalate plasticizer compatible with a wide range of synthetic resinous materials. Imparts a softening and flexibilizing effect to resins. Used in the formulation of PVC plastisols.
Effective high solvating plasticizer. Possesses exceptional stain resistance that makes it ideal for resilient polyvinyl chloride (PVC) flooring topcoats. PVC formulations can be processed at lower temperatures and/or quicker production rate.
Medium molecular weight polymeric adipate. Is characterized by a mild ester odor and light color. It is highly permanent and resistant to oil as well as solvent extraction.
Product
Admex™ 523
Medium molecular weight polymeric plasticizer. Possesses a mild ester odor and light color. Imparts very good processability to PVC compositions. Exhibits high gel strength, low fusion temperatures and very good cell structure.
Lowest viscosity plasticizer. Imparts a dry surface to the vinyl, very good resistance to staining, and physical properties equivalent to DOP. Used for automotive OEM, plastisols, sheet vinyl flooring, toys/sporting goods, traffic cones, vinyl compounding, vinyl gloves, wall coverings.
