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

Conclusions Based on the above mentioned, it seems reasonable to conclude that ASE appears – based on technical observations only – to be an actual general plasticiser alternative to DEHP. ATBC would not take decoration, it had high migration into adjacent materials leading to swelling and splitting, and there was a consequent need for tooling changes.

In some cases, blends of different alternative plasticisers may be needed to attain the desired technical characteristics.

The potential for attaining reduced prices with increased production volume has not been investigated by the research made for this study. The table also indicates the level of market experience in each application area according to Vertellus Prices of chemicals and other industrial products tend to decrease as production capacity and competition is increased.

According to Krauskopf and Godwinbenzoates are generally strong solvates due to the high aromaticity, as are lower molecular weight phthalates such as BBP. More blending may be needed with some of the non-phthalate alternatives to achieve general plasticiser characteristics. 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.


Triacetin is used for the solidification of acetyl cellulose fibres in the manufacture of cigarette filters. Three times higher water extraction than DEHP. Efficiency indicator, also called substitution factor, indicating the concentration of plasticiser in PVC needed, compared to DEHP, to achieve a specified flexibility according to a well defined method. It is a good plasticizer for vinyl toys.

DINCH is the hydrogenated parallel to DINP, with the difference that the ring structure is cyclohexane a cyclic alkyl hydrocarbon instead of a benzene ring an aromate. The producer, Vertellus, has indicated significant market experience for toys, medical articles, and certain non-polymer applications substituting for both DEHP, DBP and BBP, indicating both general plasticiser characteristics and coverage of some of the special performance characteristics of DBP and BBP.

Some general plasticiser like applications will require blends with slower fusing plasticizers Genovique, Wilson states, that were it not for the higher prices of ASE, it could easily be used as an alternative to the general purpose phthalate plasticisers in a wide range of applications.

Note that Vertellus has indicated significant market experience for toys, medical articles, and certain non-polymer applications substituting for both DEHP, DBP and BBP, indicating both general plasticiser characteristics and coverage of some of the special performance characteristics of DBP and BBP.

We have not been able to find a price for TXIB for this study. It should be noted that the prices of DEHP have dropped significantly over the last decade or more. Similarly, the extractability in medical appliances with lipid fat contact may perhaps limit its use for certain medical applications.

ASE has high resistance to degradation from weathering, microorganisms and alkaline media.

Poor weatherability properties for external applications such as roofing and coil coating Eastman, The higher polarity results in faster gelling speed than can be achieved with other plasticisers at similar molecular weight and volatility. As shown, performance parameters are quite close to DEHP’s, except for a higher resistance to kerosene jet-fuel, lipophilic solvent. The expenses associated with such additional research and implementation has not been assessed in this study.

DGD is a commonly used benzoate.

It has been widely used in cushion vinyl flooring for this purpose, usually in conjunction with BBP; this use has however declined greatly in the s as its high volatility causes unacceptable emissions from end products.

Front page Contents Previous Next. Note the 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. Bennzoflex is the ideal additive bezoflex toys.

Note the significant market experience in sealants, adhesives, coatings and inks as well as benziflex PVC spread coating plastisolsextrusion and injection moulding. Market experience categories interpretation: DINCHcertainly have some experience as indicated by the production volumes of the substances.

Key characteristics Table 5. In vinyl sheet flooring, the benzoate enhances processing, while the low molecular weight contributes a hardened, stain resistant surface, due to volatilization, similar to the effect of BBP in ebnzoflex.
