Performance Intermediates - Markets & Applications - Plasticizers
Markets & Applications
With the addition of plasticizers, polymeric materials such as PVC become flexible and supple for further processing and use. Our plasticizers are manufactured on the basis of isononyl alcohol (INA), and are used primarily for the manufacture of soft-PVC products and in industries such as construction and automotive industries for example.
Our logistic options
We offer the following means of transportation of VESTINOL® 9, VESTINOL® INB, and ELATUR® CH to our customers according to product:
In Europe, VESTINOL® 9 is one of the most important universal plasticizers for PVC. VESTINOL® 9 is used in both thermoplastic and plastisol processing operations and in both cases, represents excellent value for money and an outstanding processing window.
As a monobenzoate, VESTINOL® INB is a non-phthalate and displays fast-gelling properties and, for this reason, it is frequently used in PVC-plastisol processing for the manufacture of floor coverings and in coatings and sealants.
ELATUR® CH – our non-phthalate universal plasticizer – is especially suitable for more demanding PVC applications, such as everyday objects which come into direct contact with the skin.
BENEFITS TO OUR CUSTOMERS
We have in-depth global knowledge of down-stream markets for both alcohols and plasticizers.
Plasticizers produced form INA are state-of-the-art general purpose plasticizers.
