Non-phthalate plasticizer for sensitive applications

Non-phthalate plasticizer for sensitive applications

Plasticizers are used to make plastic softer and more flexible. The most commonly used plasticizers for PVC are phthalates. However, there are concerns regarding toxicity of certain phthalates. This causes an increasing pressure from both public authorities and customers to shift toward the use of phthalate-free alternatives. Proviron is helping this transition by offering high-quality non-phthalate plasticizers.

Proviplast 2755 is a non-phthalate plasticizer that can be used for sensitive applications. It meets the requirements for applications where consumers are in direct contact with the PVC end-products, while out-performing other phthalate free alternatives.
