New Plasticizer Combines Low-Temperature Flexibility and UV Resistance
A new plasticizer developed by Evonik is characterized by low-temperature flexibility and UV resistance, imparting weather resistance and durability to end-use products. ELATUR DINCD is easy to process because of its low viscosity and is suited for demanding exterior and interior applications, such as textile fabrics, roofing membranes, floor coverings, adhesives and sealants, as well as paints and coatings.
“In developing the new isononanol-based plasticizer, we were able to draw on many years of experience in research, production, and marketing,” said Dr. Michael Graß, Head of Application Technology for plasticizers. “This has enabled us to develop a product based on our technologies that offers customers new opportunities in product optimization through a combination of good processability and high durability.”
Evonik has offered ELATUR CH, another new-generation plasticizer, in addition to VESTINOL 9 since 2013. As a fast fuser for special PVC applications, ELATUR DPT completes the portfolio and is particularly effective in combination with ELATUR CH, said Evonik.
The new product will be manufactured at the group’s largest site in Marl, Germany. An initial production campaign has been successfully carried out. Production will be expanded step by step, in response to market demand, said Evonik.
