Phthalate-free Plasticizer - OXEA Chemicals

With OXSOFT L9TM, OXEA Chemicals offer an alternative to C8/10 trimellitates, which are influenced by non-availability time and again. OXSOFT L9TM is a linear trinonyl-trimellitate based on n-Nonanol, which is available in sufficient quantity. OXSOFT L9TM is applied for cable, film, tube and artificial leather and shows outstanding properties as to migration, volatility, fogging and heat resistance. Furthermore, OXSOFT L9TM has a good performance as to cold flexibility.

The latest amendments of KRAHN CHEMIE’s portfolio are the PUR prepolymers based on polyether- and polyesterpolyols as well as aromatic and aliphatic isocyanates. It is remarkable that some of the products have an excess of isocyanate groups so that the monomer proportion is less than 0.5 %. These PUR prepolymers are suitable for the production of thermosets, adhesives and sealants, elastomers and coatings.
