Dibenzoate plasticizers from Emerald bring critical performance and value to a wide range of industrial applications. They are REACh registered, non-phthalate solutions, which help formulators to develop desirable performance characteristics. As a result, manufacturers are able to meet all of their needs for excellent performance, efficiency, and regulatory compliance.
Due to their high compatibility with polar polymers, Emerald’s plasticizers achieve excellent performance in applications such as waterborne adhesives, latex caulk, reactive sealants, waterborne coatings, and flexible vinyl.
K-FLEX® products are fast-fusing high solvators, resulting in high gelation strength and improved properties in applications such as plastisols, including vinyl flooring, automotive plastisols, vinyl leathercloth/synthetic leather, and vinyl gloves. In melt compounding, K-FLEX improves compatibility of DOTP, closing the performance gap with phthalates.
Kalama® VITROFLEX® non-phthalate plasticizers are tailored for performance in polysulfide formulations, including enhanced flexibility, adhesion, and cure rates. Kalama VITROFLEX plasticizers avoid the regulatory challenges associated with phthalates and chlorinated paraffins. In addition, they are low-VOC and tailored for excellent permanence and low migration, which helps manufacturers to reduce or eliminate fogging in insulated glass seal applications. They are also used in applications such as construction, secondary containment, and aerospace.
