ChemFlexx DOA C22H42O4

ChemFlexx DOA is The Chemical Company (TCC) brand for Dioctyl adipate (DOA) plasticizer. DOA is an ester of 2-ethylhexanol and adipic acid. It is a low-toxicity, biodegradable, light colored, oily liquid generally used as a plasticizer for PVC. The compound is sometimes blended with other plasticizers such as DOP and DOTP.

ChemFlexx DOA features flexibility at low temperatures, good electrical properties, resistance to weathering, and good stability to heat. The product is used to manufacture clear food packaging films, children’s toys, wire and cable.

Plasticizer Overview

Plasticizers are polymer additives that serve to increase the polymer’s flexibility, elongation and ease of processing. In other words, they make the polymer more workable. In technical terms, the addition of a plasticizer generally causes a reduction in the cohesive intermolecular forces along polymer chains. The chains can then move more freely relative to one another, hence reducing the stiffness of the polymer.

The use of plasticizers began in the mid 1860s when castor oil was added to Cellulose Nitrate. The most commonly measured physical effects include melt viscosity, elasticity modulus, and the glass transition temperature. Other types of plasticizers have been used through the years, but in the late 1930s, phthalates were introduced because they were believed to be less toxic. The two most common plasticizers used today are di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) and di-isononyl phthalate (DINP). Both of which are generally used in the manufacture of PVC related products.

The Phthalate Plasticizer Market

In 1999, the global volume of plasticizers was approximately 10 billion lbs., or about $5 billion, The market has had an average yearly growth rate of 2-3 percent.

Of these plasticizers, standard phthalate esters comprise over 85 percent of the tonnage produced every year. Phthalates command the market due to their low cost, ease of use and availability. Other common plasticizers include adipates, polymerics and trimellitates.

Over 90 percent of plasticizer volume goes into flexible PVC applications. Plasticized PVC polymer is found in a wide variety of products including food packaging, construction materials, toys, and medical devices. Yet PVC in its “true” form is a hard, brittle polymer used in PVC pipe for the construction industry.

About

The Chemical Company’s (TCC) ChemFlexx DOA (Di-2-ethylhexyl adipate or DOA) is a plasticizer with a wide range of applications.

ChemFlexx DOA is flexible at low temperatures, features good electrical properties as well as resistance to weathering and stability to heat. The light colored, oily liquid is used to manufacture clear films for food packaging applications. Additionally, the product is compatible with nitrocellulose, ethyl cellulose, most synthetic rubbers, and cellulose acetate butyrate. Short chain esters are used as high-boiling, biodegradable, low-toxicity solvents and antiperspirants. Long chain esters of adipic acid are used as lubricants for the functions of stability, superior lubricity, corrosion protection, biodegradability, and excellent performance at both high and low temperatures. Adipic acid esters are used as low-temperature-resistant and low-viscosity plasticizers for polymers and cellulose esters.

Applications

ChemFlexx DOA is used in the manufacturing of clear films for food packaging, children’s toys, wire and cable. Additionally, it is compatible with nitrocellulose, ethylcellulose, most synthetic rubbers, and high-butyryl cellulose acetate butyrate. As a short chain ester, it is incorporated in the production of high-boiling, biodegradable, low-toxicity solvents and antiperspirants.

ChemFlexx L9P C9

TCC’s ChemFlexx L9P Plasticizer is a straight-chain linear C9 phthalate that is a non-toxic, colorless, odorless, oily liquid compound less dense than water. ChemFlexx L9P is used for its improved low-temperature properties and oxidation resistance.

The liquid compound is a monomeric linear plasticizer that is preferred in the manufacture of products requiring good low temperature flexibility, low volatility, and high efficiency such as film and sheeting, and for extruded and molded automotive applications.

About

TCC’s ChemFlexx L9P Plasticizer is a straight-chain linear alcohol C9 phthalate. It is a non-toxic, colorless, odorless, oily, liquid compound that is less dense than water and like all phthalates, does not evaporate readily.

ChemFlexx L9P offers lower volatility and greater permanence as well as a slight improvement in low-temperature flexibility. L9P is used for improved low-temperature properties and oxidation resistance.

Applications

TCC’s ChemFlexx L9P Plasticizer is a monomeric linear C9 plasticizer used in the manufacture of flexible PVC films that are used in agricultural applications e.g., seedling protection, weed control, and green house coverings. The liquid compound is also used for the manufacture of vinyl upholstery products, automotive door panel coverings, geomembranes for landfill liners, canal liners, pond and pit liners, and other mining applications.

ChemFlexx DUP C30H50O4

TCC’s ChemFlexx DUP

DiUndecyl Phthalate (DUP) is a non-toxic, oily, colorless, odorless liquid compound that is less dense than water. It is one of a group of phthalates that are excellent primary plasticizers. It has a wide variety of applications that include the manufacture of high-grade vinyl coated fabrics, films, and heat-resistant electric wires.

About

TCC’s ChemFlexx DUP DiUndecyl Phthalate (DUP) is a non-toxic, colorless, odorless, oily liquid compound that is less dense than water. Its chemical name is 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylicacid, 1,2-diundecyl ester. Its formula is C30H50O4. DUP is insoluble in water.

DUP is the phthalate ester of undecyl (linear C-11) alcohol. It is an excellent primary plasticizer. Particularly, it has favorable cold temperature and volatility resistance. As a matter of course, the liquid compound undergoes less physical property change after being aged. DUP has a wide range of industrial applications.

DUP produces no ill effects at normal temperatures, but may give off irritating vapor at elevated temperatures.

Applications

TCC’s ChemFlexx DUP DiUndecyl Phthalate (DUP) is a long chain linear phthalate that is used when high temperature stability is required. DUP is essential to the production of high-grade leathers, films, and heat-resistant electrical wires.
