polymers including PVC and polyurethanes.

Business Unit : Functional Chemicals

Properties and Benefits

  • outstanding gelling capacity with a large number of polymers including PVC and polyurethanes, resulting in lower processing temperatures and shorter processing times
  • high saponification resistance, especially beneficial for articles which come into contact with water and alkalis.
  • good compatibility with a large number of polymers such as polyurethane (PU), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), natural rubber (NR),styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), blends of styrene-butadiene rubber and butadiene rubber (SBR/BR), isobutylene-isoprene rubber (IIR), acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) and chloroprene rubber (CR)
  • outstanding resistance to weathering and light
  • good dielectric properties which give  plasticised PVC outstanding weldability at high frequencies leading to shorter cycle times than with other plasticisers.
