Chemically, these plasticizers are completely saturated and thus possess remarkable stability and are not affected by heat, cold, ultra violet light, oxygen, ozone, or other factors that contribute to the deterioration of organic materials.

Compounds in which Resoflex R-296 or R-446 serve as the plasticizer exhibit the following properties:

  • Non-migratory
  • Excellent stability on long ageing under all conditions
  • Essentially zero volatility
  • No plasticizer migration
  • Excellent resistance to oils, fats, grease and gasoline
  • Good low temperature flexibility
  • Good water resistance
  • Excellent flexibility and toughness
  • UV stable
  • Color stable
  • Not water soluble

These plasticizers are being used very successfully by industry in the following applications:

  • Adhesives
  • Polyester foam
  • Grease-Proof paper and fiberboard coatings for food packaging
  • Barrier coatings for vinyl-flooring and wall covering
  • Water emulsion paints
  • Washable sizes for fabrics
  • Leather finishes
  • Warp sizes
  • Backing compounds for rugs and carpets
  • Binders for fiberboard
  • High grade heat resistant lacquers
  • Coating fabrics having high moisture vapor transmission
  • Binders for non-woven fabric
  • Bookbinding adhesives
  • Self sizing wall primers and sealers
  • Heat-seal coatings
  • Laminations
  • Coating nylon thread and filament
  • Synthetic Lubricants
