With the REACH sunset date of Feb 2015 fast approaching we can help you switch quickly and efficiently from classified DOP plasticizers to Emoltene™ 100 (DPHP), our high performance non-classified plasticizer range or to Pevalen™ our new polyolester plasticizer for sensitive applications.Contact David Turner today to make the switch (contact details below on the right)
Time to switch to non-classified plasticizers
From Feb 2015 you will no longer be able to use, or only use in restricted circumstances, Low Molecular Weight phthalate plasticizers. They have been classified on health and environmental grounds due to their potential negative effects. These include DOP, DBP, DIBP and BBP.
High molecular weight phthalates, such as Emoltene™100 (DPHP) are not classified, and have been extensively tested and evaluated by the EU authorities. They are considered safe to use in all applications.
Emoltene™100 is a general-purpose plasticizer based on C10 alcohol 2-Propylheptanol (2-PH). It is characterized by excellent versatility and flexibility with a solid health and safety profile. You can read more about DPHP and phthalate plasticizers at the European Council for Plasticizers and Intermediates (ECPI) sponsored sites:

Emoltene™100 is the ideal replacement for DOP since its superior properties, especially its low volatility, ensures an outstanding lifetime performance that outlasts its rivals. This durability and versatility extends the life of PVC products with little or no maintenance making it the favorite choice of the European cable & wire industry. Its tough weather resistance also makes it suitable for outdoor applications, such as roofing membranes, tarpaulins, and automotive applications.
