including PVC, latex, polyurethane, and polysulfideto name a few.
Triaryl phosphate ester. Acts as a plasticizer with flame-retardant properties suitable for use in a variety of polymer systems. Offers a high level of solvation, fast processing and compatibility limits that are wide enough for virtually all types of formulations. Imparts a significant level of fire retardance to vinyl as well as vinyl nitrile foams, and it helps the foamed product meet certain specified flammability performance criteria. Also acts as a processing aid and contributes to excellent cell structure. In polyvinyl acetate emulsions, Santicizer 154 gives flexibility, assists film formation and generally improves the water resistance. Also provides a significant level of flame retardance to the composition.
Isodecyl diphenyl phosphate. Acts as a plasticizer. Imparts to PVC a low-temperature flexibility almost equivalent to that of DOP. Offers good flame retardancy, low smoke, easy processability and low volatility. Provides economical self-extinguishing properties. Due to its low volatility, the properties of flame retardancy and flexibility imparted by Santicizer 148 to PVC articles are well retained at low temperatures. Is particularly recommended for low smoke vinyl cable sheath when flame retardancy, flexibility at low temperatures and low ageing at high temperatures must be combined. Used in upholstered furniture, coverings for public transportation, wall coverings and cable insulation.
2-Ethylhexyldiphenyl Phosphate. Used as a flame retardant plasticizer for the majority of industrial polymers, including PVC and its copolymers, cellulose nitrate, cellulose acetatebutyrate, ethylcellulose, polymethylmethacrylate and polystyrene. Offers low-temperature properties. Exhibits low smoke density, good resistance to abrasion and to oils and fats. Imparts very good light stability and weather resistance, and exceptional high-frequency weldability. Can be used and appreciated for the preparation of vinyl sheets, plastisols and organosols, vinyl packing materials, and conveyor belts.
Monomeric phthalic ester plasticizer. Used in acrylic coatings and acrylic powder coatings. Possesses very low volatility, fast fusion characteristics, very low efficiency and outstanding stain resistance. Provides very good resistance to water spotting, great toughness and very good adhesion. Improves flow-out characteristics.
application in PVC film and sheeting, coated fabrics, plastisols, organosols, vinyl foams, polyurethane and polysulfide caulks and sealants, and acrylic lacquers. Extraction resistance
against alcohol and kerosene is comparable to low molecular weight polymeric plasticizers.
Fast fusing phthalate plasticizer. Used in acrylic coatings. Possesses very good resistance to extraction, low initial viscosity, good shelf life and flow properties. Provides very good durability, anti-fogging properties, good adhesion to metal undercoats, improved weatherability and good solvent-craze resistance. Offers gloss, good flow characteristics and flexibility without brittleness for a long, handsome coating life.
The solubilizing action of Santicizer 160 helps ensure that lubricants and other surface-active additives don’t interfere with post-decorative ink adhesion or dielectric sealing applications. In most PVC applications, Santicizer 160 is used with general-purpose plasticizers to improve processing characteristics and finished product performance.
Butyl benzyl phthalate. Used as a very good plasticizer in paints, inks and coatings. Reduces Tg. Offers high compatibility with acrylics, nitrocellulose and urethane compositions. Improves flexibility, coalescing and cold check performance of cure films. Provides very good weatherability, paintability and long term anti-fungal properties. Offers improved resistance to extraction by water, superior physical properties and retention of physicals, resistance to hydrolysis and to extraction by jet fuels. Gives very good gloss, desirable flexibility and flowout.
and mineral oils. This plasticizer is thusrecommended and used for oil resistant cable jacketingand hoses
409A isapolymeric plasticizer - a modified polybutylene adipate - which presents a remarkable balance of properties:performance, efficiency, migration and extractionresistance, humidity compatibility, low temperature flexibility and excellent processing characteristics incalendering as well asspreadcoating applications.
Santicizer 409A is the reference product in the Ferro series of polymeric plasticizers. It isrecommendedfor
usein all applicationfields wherea polymeric plasticizer isneeded e.g. refrigerator gasketing, extractionresistant cable jacketingand pipes, adhesive backed films andtapes, but also in synthetic leathercloth, packaging films and nitrilerubbers.
