Awareness is increasing regarding the environment and the safety of plasticizers and a response is being demanded in raw materials as well. DIC is working to develop plasticizers (non-phthalate) that accommodate usage restrictions for Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals, food utensils, containers and packaging, and toys.
Polycizer W-230-H and W-1410-EL, polyester-based plasticizers developed by DIC as a replacement for phthalate plasticizers, have the features shown below.

Features

Polycizer W-230-H has low viscosity with good workability. It possess the same low temperature flexibility as DEHP (DOP) and has excellent heat aging characteristics.
Polycizer W-1410-EL is a plasticizer that achieves a balance between flexibility and durability.

  • Non-phthalate ester: Polyester (Non-phthalate structure)
  • High performance: Non-volatility (low degradation), non-migration, oil resistant
  • Safety: JHP (Japan Hygienic PVC Association) PL approved

Major Regulations & Applications

  • REACH: Authorized substances DEHP (DOP), DBP, BBP listed on September 21, 2010.
  • Act on the Evaluation of Chemical Substances and Regulation of Their Manufacture, Etc: DEHP - Class 2 Monitored Chemical Substance
  • Major Applications:  Hoses, wires, game consoles, gaskets

Properties List

Polycizer W-230-H has low viscosity because of polyester and has excellent oil resistance compared to phthalate ester.
Polycizer W-1410-EL has excellent non-volatility, non-migration, and oil resistance compared to phthalate ester.
