K-FLEX® Dibenzoate Plasticizers from Emerald Kalama Chemical achieve excellent performance and compatibility with the polar polymers used in waterborne adhesive applications, such as direct food contact adhesives and pressure-sensitive adhesives. The wide compatibility of K-FLEX plasticizers ensures a one-product fit for both homopolymer and copolymer formulations.

K-FLEX dibenzoates offer exceptional performance characteristics in these applications, including:

  • excellent viscosity response and chalk point/Tg depression,
  • extended open times and reduced set times,
  • improved wet tack, and
  • improved dry film resistance to oil, grease, and water.

K-FLEX® Plasticizers are value-added alternatives to phthalates such as dibutyl phthalate and diisobutyl phthalate, which have become increasingly scrutinized for health and safety concerns. K-FLEX Plasticizers offer excellent regulatory, safety, and environmental profiles. They are non-phthalate, low-VOC, and REACh compliant, as well as listed under FDA food contact approvals for food packaging applications.
