K-FLEX® 975P

K-FLEX 975P is a patent-pending blend of diethylene glycol dibenzoate, dipropylene glycol dibenzoate and propylene glycol dibenzoate. K-FLEX 975P was created to offer a broad range of compatibility with polar polymers. Due to its lower freeze point, K-FLEX 975P also has better handling properties than other modern binary dibenzoate blends. As this is a new product, additional applications are being considered such as latex caulk and sealant uses.
