Proviplast® 2388 Di-2-ethylhexyl-terephthalate or DOTP

19 August 2011 by claire.smith

Proviplast® 2388 is a non-phthalate plasticiser, which can be used to replace ortho-phthalates in most applications.  It offers a near one-to-one replacement with limited redesign of the compounds and polymer formulations.  It offers superior plasticiser performance and compatibility, as well as better low termperature flexibility than ortho-phthalates and no water and water-soap extraction.  Polymers of interest are PVC (polyvinylchloride), polyester, acrylic resins, polyurethane, polar rubbers and (nitro)celullosic resins.

Because of its different structure compared to the ortho-phthalates, the toxicity profile is different, so Proviplast® 2388 can be used in cling films, closures, medical devices and toys.  The dedicated production process guarantees the complete absence of ortho-phthalates.
