Note that Lanxess has indicated significant market experience for adhesives, coatings and inks and examples of full scale experience in a number of other non-polymer traditional DBP and BBP uses. Compounding easier than with DEHP; calendering: The volatility of DEHT is somewhat lower, and the extractability in water and kerosene is somewhat higher.

It was also reported as used for toys by Danish toy manufacturers with contract production in China ; used alone it did however not perform adequately in the established toy production setup due to migration to adjacent materials, print resistance, etc. New research initiated needs yet to prove potential for increased production at lower prices. Key characteristics According to ECPI, acetyl tributyl citrate is traditionally used in electrical coatings and casings because of its solvating characteristics.

Research is therefore ongoing to produce the substances from other, more abundant, biological substrates Buck Jensen, 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. Front page Contents Previous Next Top. 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.

It was however not included for further investigation in this study because it was reported by SCENIHR to have reproductive toxicity. As shown, here TXIB has higher hardness lower efficiency than the phthalates, high volatility yet lower than DBP and much higher extractability in water. Plastisols contain 60 phr plasticiser; milled and calendered PVC contains 50 phr plasticiser; phr meaning parts per parts hard PVC by weight. 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 flooring.


However in the existing production setup, it suffered from a variety of technical drawbacks when compared with DINP: Owing to its chemical structure, DINA permits — preferably, in combination with phthalates and polymeric plasticizers — the production of plasticized PVC products with exceptionally good low temperature properties.

The CAS number of the mixture is COMGHA is an efficient, one-to-one replacement for most conventional plasticisers, such as phthalates. The higher extractability in aqueous solutions and the higher volatility may reduce the performance of ATBC as a plasticiser in PVC, and could perhaps limit its use for certain applications. High resistance to extraction by saponification extraction with soap waterLanxess,b.

Its structure gives it some advantages over phthalates for certain processes and aggressive environments. DEHP has substitution factor 1 per definition, while plasticisers needing lower concentration more effective have lower values, and plasticisers needing higher concentrations have higher effectiveness value.

Also, some of the marketed plasticiser products consist of several substances, pre-mixed to provide desired performance characteristics. A summary of the assessed alternatives is given in Table 5. Some general plasticiser like applications will require blends with slower fusing plasticizers Genovique, These blends could be used in many cases as one-to-one replacements for DINP so that major changes to designs and tooling were not necessary.

The higher polarity results in faster gelling speed than can be achieved with other plasticisers at similar molecular weight and volatility. Instead DINA was chosen for further study.


Conclusions TXIB seems to have some technically relevant characteristics as plasticiser. Some of the substances, for which specific information on market experience has not been supplied e. However it suffered from a variety of technical drawbacks when compared with DINP. For such uses, the larger molecule n-butyryltri-n-hexyl Citrate is recommended by Vertellus.

It offers good performance properties, good low temperature flexibility, resistance to extraction by soapy water and good non-migration properties.

Based on the available information, a number of suitable alternative plasticisers have been identified for most applications. A Danish study Nilsson et al. Front page Contents Previous Next.

It also improves adhesion in acrylic latex caulks Genovique, b. Note that Eastman has indicated significant market experience for all traditional DEHP uses, except car undercoating and production of ceramics. ATBC is widely used in food contact polymers.

It serves as an ingredient in inks for printing on plastics, and as a plasticizer in nail polish. It is marketed by Lanxess and Eastman under the name Triacetin.

Another application is inks and printing inks. According to Krauskopf and Godwinit’s preferred use is in PVC flooring benzofelx, owing to its strong solvating strength, and it reportedly controls plasticiser bleeding benzofle asphalt adhesives.

The data available for this study does not allow clear-cut conclusions as regards DINA’s suitability as alternative to DEHP, but DINA could perhaps be worth investigating in future technical explorations for alternatives. ATBC is effective in solution coating both paperboard and foil.
