A non phthalate plasticizer that mirrors performance properties of DOP

Eastman Plasticizers
This is a Past Webinar

Developed in the mid-1920s, flexible PVC faced few regulatory concerns, and DOP—considered the best plasticizer—could be used in every application. Fast forward to 2019 and DOP is still a great plasticizer, but it has fewer end-use applications due to regulatory pressure. Although ortho-phthalate esters still represent 65% of the global market, the market continues to shift toward non-ortho-phthalate alternatives. Finding a replacement that is suitable for existing flexible PVC production can be challenging.

The most popular alternative, DOTP, provides acceptable performance in many applications, but some processes require better performance. Eastman VersaMax™ Plus plasticizer, a terephthalate, mirrors performance properties of DOP and is a near drop-in replacement.
