Environmentally-friendly PVC Plasticizers (Non-phthalate Plasticizers)
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 and food utensils, containers and packaging, and toys. Examples of major applications and representative product numbers of non-phthalate plasticizers are shown below.
• Food utensils/containers and packaging
